Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood Announces ‘You Were Never Really Here’ Score
Radiohead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood is set to release his latest soundtrack work — this time for his score to Lynne Ramsay's mystery thriller, You Were Never Really Here. You can watch a clip from the film featuring Greenwood's music above.
It's due out March 9 for digital release via Invada Records/Lakeshore Records, ahead of the film's April release. CD and vinyl releases will follow, Greenwood noted on social media today. "Features @LCOrchestra @ollycoates & lots of #microtones #recorders #electricguitar #maxmsp," he wrote on Twitter. "Hope you enjoy listening: the film’s great."
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as a veteran who tracks down missing girls for a living. "When a job spins out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening," according to a synopsis of the film.
This release comes on the heels of his first Oscar nomination for his The Phantom Thread composition. He will attend the ceremony on March 4, where he'll face some tough competition for Best Original Score, including Hans Zimmer for Dunkirk, John Williams for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Alexandre Desplat for The Shape of Water. Desplat already edged out Greenwood for the Golden Globe this year.
Greenwood has long worked on compositions for film, often collaborating with famed director Paul Thomas Anderson, who turned to him for music while making 2007's There Will Be Blood, 2012's The Master and 2014's Inherent Vice prior to The Phantom Thread.
