Thom Yorke to change the way we think about October FOREVER with the release of Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino film) THIS OCTOBER on XL Recordings
Thom Yorke ca. autumn 2018

MARK THE TIME AND DATE — AND REMEMBER WHERE YOU WERE SITTING WHEN YOU CLICKED THE FATEFUL LINK THAT BROUGHT YOU HERE.

Because THIS, my friends, is the exact moment when you’re learning that Thom Yorke has just announced that Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film) — his first-ever full foray into Johnny Greenwood’s wheelhouse of moody-broody film soundtrack-ery — will officially be released this October 26 via XL Recordings.

(This next tiny paragraph is for letting that piece of information SINK IN…)

(And so is this one.)

(Aaaand one more.)

Okay, anyway: you might remember from previous, A-rated TMT experiences that Suspiria is a remake of the “cult Italian horror film which tells the story of a young American dancer arriving at a prestigious dance school in Berlin and discovering it’s not all jetes and plies.”

But enough about NOT the music: SUSPIRIA THE ALBUM consists of “25 original compositions written by Thom” and comprises a potpourri of “instrumental score work, interstitial pieces and interludes, and more traditional song[s] featuring Thom’s vocals.” The whole shebang was “recorded and produced by Thom and Sam Petts-Davies” and features Noah Yorke on drums, Pasha Mansurov on solo flute, and the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir on contemporary orchestra-ness and choir-ocity.

“Wow,” right? Enough already! Where can you HEAR and BUY this earth-shattering goddamn thing?

Welllllll, it just so happens that you can watch the video (animated by Ruff Mercy) for the creatively-titled track “Suspirium” down below and pre-order your own personal paradigm shift on your choice of 2xLP, 2xCD, or 200,000,000xDIGITAL (hey, why not?) right over here.
