The sessions were filmed by Paul Thomas Anderson for new documentary 'Junun'
The musician recorded the music for ‘Junun’ in India earlier this year with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich, plus local artists. It reportedly features a mix of “Arabic, Indian and western music.”
The sessions were filmed by director Paul Thomas Anderson for a new documentary of the same name. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival last night (October 8).
According to Consequence Of Sound, copies of the album were given out following a screening of the film. Anderson confirmed during a Q&A session that the record will be released next month and that the album will be performed live with the musicians in London and America (visa permitting).
Meanwhile, Radiohead are currently in the studio working on their latest album. Studio photos recently emerged showing the band at work on the LP.
The group’s upcoming ninth album will be their follow-up to 2011’s ‘The King Of Limbs’, with guitarist Jonny Greenwood recently confirming that they’re working in the studio “in periods” and that restarting the process “took a lot of time”.
Drummer Phil Selway also stated that work on the album would “become a full schedule” during September and that the band are “back into” working on the LP.
In addition to this, Yorke recently revealed that he will compose new music for an upcoming production of Harold Pinter’s Old Times in New York.
