Thom Yorke
Suspiria

[ XL Recordings / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 26 October 2018

Suspiria consists of 25 original compositions written by Thom specifically for Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror classic. The album is a mix of instrumental score work, interstitial pieces and interludes, and more traditional song structures featuring Thom's vocals including the previously released 'Suspirium', which features the melodic theme that recurs throughout the film and its score.

As scoring a horror film presented Thom with altogether new challenges and opportunities, Suspiria stands apart from any of his other work. Piano/vocal ballads, Krautrock-esque modular synth work inspired by the film's Berlin 1977 setting, multi-layered vocals, and melodies that convey terror, longing and melancholy combine to create a chaotic yet cohesive musical spell.

Suspiria was written and arranged by Thom Yorke, recorded and produced by Thom and Sam Petts-Davies. The album also features the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, Noah Yorke on drums on 'Volk' and 'Has Ended', and Pasha Mansurov on solo flute on 'Suspirium'.
