The Radiohead frontman released his score for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the classic horror last month. It features 25 original compositions – with contributions from the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, Pasha Mansurov, and Yorke’s own son, Noah, who plays drums on two songs.
At the opening night of his tour in Philidelphia on Friday night (November 23), the musician gave ‘Unmade’ its live debut during the show’s second encore. The track was the only Suspiria cut to feature in the set, which leant on material from Yorke’s solo albums and Atoms for Peace songs.
Last night (November 24), Yorke swapped ‘Unmade’ in favour of ‘Suspirium’. According to setlist.fm, the former appeared on the printed setlist but wasn’t performed.
Earlier this month, ‘Suspirium’ featured on an eclectic mix that Yorke created for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction show. The playlist, which began with Radiohead’s ‘Burn The Witch’, also included Aphex Twin and electronic artist Carl Stone.
Meanwhile, Thom Yorke recently revealed that he was “jealous” of his bandmate Johnny Greenwood’s film score work.
Discussing the Suspiria project, Yorke was asked if Greenwood’s experience made the process easier. “If I was honest with myself, I was a little bit jealous but felt that I couldn’t [do it] so I never tried,” he replied.
In other news, Yorke has shed some light on his “politically charged” new solo album that’s “different to anything” he’s done before. “The method has been the opposite of depending on computers,” he added.
“We’ve improvised with a lot of sounds and effects. It has been a very weird way to make a record, which is very exciting.” Asked whether he’s gotten bored of computers, Yorke replied: “I always get bored.”
