Graham Coxon announces soundtrack album

'It's Pink Floyd with fangs,' guitarist tells NME.COM

Graham Coxon has revealed he has recorded the score for a new British film.

The guitarist, who plays London‘s Barbican Centre this Saturday (November 28), told NME.COM that the film is due out in the near future, though he stopped short of revealing the title.

“It’s for a film coming out relatively soon, it’s a British sort of ‘freak thriller’, I suppose you could call it,” Coxon explained, before comparing the soundtrack to “Pink Floyd with fangs”.

Coxon added that his 45-minute score includes several covers of nursery rhymes.

“They [film producers] gave me some themes to play with, famous old nursery rhymes and folk songs that I wanted to muck about with. I came up with 13 or 14 tracks, so about 45 minutes of music – it’s a weird, strange kind of album.”
