Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood announces first live performance of Academy Award-nominated ‘Phantom Thread’ score

New Paul Thomas Anderson movie is out next month

Jonny Greenwood has announced plans to perform a one-off concert in London next week for the soundtrack to the forthcoming Paul Thomas Anderson film Phantom Thread.

The Radiohead guitarist will be teaming up with the London Contemporary Orchestra to perform the score, which this week was nominated for an Oscar, live for the first time during a screening of the movie at London’s Royal Festival Hall next Wednesday (January 31). Anderson, will also be in attendance to introduce the film along with film critic Mark Kermode.

Greenwood was enlisted by Anderson to score the film, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis in what is being billed as the acclaimed actor’s final film before retirement. Greenwood and Anderson last worked together on the latter’s 2014 film Inherent Vice. It is due for release in the UK on February 2.

Phantom Thread is Greenwood’s fourth collaboration with director Anderson following There Will Be Blood, The Master, and Inherent Vice. He is also set to score the film You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix.

Greenwood said: “It’s been a great pleasure to work again with Paul Thomas Anderson on his brilliant new film and my good friends the London Contemporary Orchestra. It’s such a special occasion for me to introduce my score for the first time to the Royal Festival Hall audience, a venue which has a great history of presenting both new music and music from films and the ideal setting to immerse yourself in the world of 1950s post war London.”

The soundtrack was released digitally earlier this month. Physical versions are set to follow in the coming months. Last month, Greenwood also unveiled new track ‘House of Woodcock’ from the soundtrack.
