Radiohead are contributing music to a film score in an upcoming film that features Ed Norton and Robert DeNiro. The film is titled Stone, and features Milla Jovovich and Frances Conroy alongside stars Ed Norton and Robert DeNiro.
"So given the spiritual ties in this film, I started talking to him about this idea: 'What would you use to record this divine-like tuning sound?' And he and Thom (Yorke) had been playing a lot of weird ambient stuff at the time and so, amazingly, they just unloaded tons and tons of files to us of these sound experiments that they had been doing. We just listened to them in awe until John (Curran) eventually got John O'Brien to come in and see what he could make of it," said Ed Norton when speaking to Variety.
The film score was composed by John O'Brien, but Radiohead has played a role in the execution of the score. Whether Johnny Greenwood and Thom Yorke performed the entire score is unclear. This isn't the first time Radiohead members have contributed to a soundtrack or film score. Johnny Greenwood scored the 2007 film There Will Be Blood. No word on the new Radiohead album yet.
