Thom Yorke unveils ‘Volk’, his latest offering from the ‘Suspiria’ soundtrack

It's suitably creepy...

Thom Yorke has released ‘Volk’, an sinister instrumental taken from the soundtrack for forthcoming horror movie Suspiria.

The haunting instrumental track relies heavily on a pattern of increasingly unsettling horns, which are played off against a sporadic drum beat.

It is the third release from the Radiohead frontman’s 25 original compositions which have been created for Luca Guadagnino’s reimagining of the 1977 film.


Yorke previously released the melodic ‘Suspirium‘, before following it with the ethereal and somewhat otherworldly sounds of ‘Has Ended’.

He recently opened up on the on the challenge of creating a soundtrack that was a worthy successor to the legendary 1977 original.

“It was one of those moments in your life where you want to run away but you know you’ll regret it if you do. I watched the original film several times, and I loved it because it was of that time, an incredibly intense soundtrack”, he said at the Venice Film Festival.

“Obviously [1977 soundtrack composers] Goblin and Dario worked incredibly closely when they did it together.”


He added: “There was no point, other than what I found interesting was they used repetition of motifs, again and again and again. Part of your mind was saying, ‘Please, I don’t want to hear this anymore.’”
