Jonny Greenwood’s ‘There Will Be Blood’ score gets first-ever vinyl release
Jonny Greenwood will see his score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s film There Will Be Blood receive its first ever vinyl release.
The record has been remastered for vinyl by Graeme Stewart and Christian Wright at Abbey Road Studios. According to a press release, the score will be pressed on 140g vinyl at Record Industry in the Netherlands and comes with two additional tracks in ‘Proven Lands (Intro.)’ and ‘De-Tuned Quartet.’
The film, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano, was inspired by Upton Sinclair’s novel Oil! Greenwood previously said that he “saw some fairly long sections of the film, read the script, and just wrote loads of music.”
He continued: “I tried to write to the scenery, and the story rather than specific ‘themes’ for characters. It’s not really the kind of narrative that would suit that. It was all about the underlying menace in the film, the greed, and that against the fucked-up, oppressive religious mood — and this kid in the middle of it all.”
The vinyl is due to be released January 18th through Nonesuch Records.
