Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood is set to release a new record next month, an accompaniment to the upcoming documentary Junun. The music was recorded earlier in 2015, seeing Greenwood collaborating with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur, and local musicians. Junun director Paul Thomas Anderson also worked with Greenwood, who had previously collaborated on 2007s’ critically acclaimed There Will Be Blood.
In February, Greenwood spoke to The Guardian about recording in India: “It’s been amazing actually, working with Indian musicians. They have such a different energy and enthusiasm for music. It’s just, it’s part of life here, it feels, rather than just being an occupation. It’s different; there’s music everywhere”.
