Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has just debuted unreleased material from his Suspiria soundtrack, after recording the film score for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the cult horror last year.
Yorke likened his approach writing the score to Ennio Morricone, who he felt structured melodies similarly to pop songs.
“There’s a way of repeating in music that can hypnotise. I kept thinking to myself that it’s a form of making spells. So when I was working in my studio I was making spells. I know it sounds really stupid, but that’s how I was thinking about it.”
The new Suspiria collection includes previously unheard Unused Spell, The7th7th7th7thSon, and A Conersation With Just Your Eyes.
Along with unreleased songs, the collection also includes three renditions of Volk and a brand new version of Unmade, which now appears under the name Unmade Overtones.
Suspiria was Yorke’s debut film score, and took him a year and a half to create. Moving away from the original movie’s soundtrack, he drew influence from the Blade Runner soundtrack, as well as artists such as Pierre Henry and James Holden. The album features the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, which also appear on Radiohead’s 2016 album A Moon Shaped Pool.
