Thom Yorke has finally unveiled his original score for Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria remake.

The picture, starring the likes of Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, and Chloë Grace Moretz and Jessica Harper, marked Yorke’s entry to film and becomes his first ever soundtrack.

While attending this year’s Venice Film Festival where the film was premiered, Yorke participated in a discussion to talk about his work composing his debut score. “There’s a way of repeating in music which can hypnotize, and I kept thinking to myself it was a form of making spells,” he said.

“So when I was working in my studio, I was making spells—and that sounds really stupid but that’s how I was thinking about it.

“It was a sort of freedom I’d not had before: I’m not working in the format of a song or arrangement, I’m just exploring. I’m putting things out into my studio and seeing what my studio is bringing back.”

The album, which consists of 25 original tracks, has now been made available to stream online. The album was recorded and produced by Yorke and Sam Petts-Davies and features contributions from the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir.

On top of that, Yorke made the Suspiria score a family affair by recruiting his own son, Noah, to play drums on two tracks.
