Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood streams ‘You Were Never Really Here’ film soundtrack

The movie comes out in April

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood is streaming his score for new Lynne Ramsay and Joaquin Phoenix film, You Were Never Really Here.

We Need To Talk About Kevin filmmaker Ramsay helms You Were Never Really Here, adapted from Jonathan Ames’ novella of the same name. It hits cinemas on April 6.

The film’s synopsis reads: “A war veteran’s attempt to save a young girl from a sex trafficking ring goes horribly wrong.”


Ahead of the film, Greenwood’s soundtrack has been released digitally via Invada Records/Lakeshore Records.

Greenwood recently spoke to NME about scoring the film, saying: “Music’s a pretty great resource to have: you’re looking for the moments when the film and score combine to make something greater than the sum of their parts – to make both element better than they would be on their own. Sometimes it happens.”

Greenwood has previously worked on film soundtracks numerous times for director Paul Thomas Anderson, notably for There Will Be BloodThe Master and Inherent Vice, the latter of which also starred Phoenix.


He teamed up with Anderson again recently for Phantom Thread, for which he received his first Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. It lost out on the Oscar to The Shape Of Water.
