The Brian Jonestown Massacre Reinterprets Jean-Luc Godard’s Films For New Album: Hear First Track ‘Philadelphie Story’

Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre has written an album called ‘Musique De Film Imaginé’. It pays homage to the great European film directors of the mid-21st Century, such as François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard for an imaginary French film.

Newcombe says:

The album that you are about to hear is a soundtrack, my own creation, a tribute to great directors and filmmakers to an era that now seems to be behind us. Leaving the smart person to care to imagine that this art could now be in the shadow of its former glory. The interesting thing about this project is that the film does not exist either. Even so, I imagined and I realised its soundtrack… Now it’s your turn, you are the listener to imagine the film

Listen to ‘Philadelphie Story’, featuring vocals from Soko, the first track from the album below.

The album’s released on Newcombe’s label on April 27 2015
