Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood contribute to ‘Stone’ soundtrack

Duo have given over 'weird ambient stuff' for Edward Norton

Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have contributed music to the new Edward Norton film Stone.

The movie, which also stars Robert De Niro, is released on October 8 in the USA – a UK release date is yet to be finalised. Norton said his friendship with the two musicians was the catalyst for getting them involved.

“I’m friends with the guys in Radiohead,” he told Variety. “And Jonny Greenwood, who did the incredible score for Paul Anderson‘s There Will Be Blood, met me in London a while back when John [Curran, director] and I were developing the script.”


He added: “So given the spiritual ties in this film, I started talking to him about this idea: ‘What would you use to record this divine-like tuning sound?’ And he and Thom had been playing a lot of weird ambient stuff at the time and so, amazingly, they just unloaded tons and tons of files to us of these sound experiments that they had been doing.

“We just listened to them in awe until John eventually got [composer] John O’Brien to come in and see what he could make of it.”
