Not just the guitarist in a rock band (albeit the most inventive and restlessly experimental band currently working today), Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood is also a composer for soundtracks and orchestras. He’s worked with the London Sinfonietta, the BBC Concert Orchestra and has written scores for TV and film, including three movies by acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Currently, Greenwood is on tour with Radiohead, promoting last year’s A Moon Shaped Pool and will also tour with his Indian-Israeli collaboration Junun, recorded with Indian ensemble Rajasthan Express and Israeli musician Shye Ben Tzur.

It’s now been revealed that Greenwood’s scoring work will feature in a new film titled You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquim Phoenix and directed by Lynne Ramsay. (Greenwood also scored Ramsay’s 2011 film We Need To Talk About Kevin). The film, which will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month is described as “a war veteran’s attempt to save a young girl from a sex trafficking ring goes horribly wrong”.

In addition, Greenwood is also working on the score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming – and as yet untitled – film, featuring Daniel Day Lewis. For fans of Greenwood’s Radiohead work, the band just announced the upcoming release of a 20th Anniversary special edition of their classic OK Computer album. Go here for more details.
