Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood was released in 2007, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano. It was the first time Greenwood worked with the director on a movie score, having since provided the score for The Master and Inherent Vice.

Greenwood recently announced a solo tour in support of his ‘Junun’ album. Released last November, ‘Junun’ is a collaborative album that Greenwood made with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and a collective of Indian musicians called the Rajasthan Express. The making of the album was documented in a film of the same name by Boogie Nights / Magnolia director Paul Thomas Anderson, with whom Greenwood has frequently collaborated.

Radiohead have also been announced as the first headliner for Glastonbury 2017, as well as a run of other huge European festival dates for 2017.
