Jonny Greenwood releases new music titled ’88 (No.1)’

It's only available as sheet music, though

Jonny Greenwood has released the sheet music for one of his original compositions. This one is titled ’88 (No.1)’ and was originally written in 2015.

The release marks the first time the music has been available for public performance after having been performed by a handful of selected pianists in the past.

Sharing the news on Twitter, Greenwood wrote, “New piano music on paper out today. It’s inspired by Glen Gould, and by the glorious mechanics of the thing. @kat_tinker (who played this version first) @JRhodesPianist (the only other pianist I follow). See that tweet below and buy the sheet music here.

Meanwhile, Greenwood stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ last night with his band Junun. They performed their self-titled track, with Greenwood on bass and composer Shye Ben Tzur on guitar and vocals.
