It is his first official movie score
The clip, which you can watch below, features Yorke’s eerie and anxious score against creepy images featuring a levitating possessed girl, blood and maggots.
The film is a remake of Dario Argento’s supernatural movie and stars Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloe Grace-Moretz. It is being remade by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love) through Amazon Studios and is due out on November 2.
It is the first feature film Yorke has scored, although he has had some involvement in film soundtracks before, contributing to Velvet Goldmine and 2013’s The UK Gold, a documentary about tax avoidance.
In a previous statement, Guadgnino said of the Radiohead frontman: “Thom’s art transcends the contemporary. To have the privilege of his music and sound for Suspiria is a dream come true. The depth of his creation and artistic vision is so unique that our Suspiria will sound groundbreaking and will deeply resonate with viewers. Our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom.”
Yorke’s bandmate Jonny Greenwood has scored a number of movies, most notably on Paul Thomas Anderson’s movies There Will Be Blood, The Master and Inherent Vice. Greenwood most recently scored the Lynne Ramsay film You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix.
