radiohead Radiohead To Lend Score To New Prison Film

[lastfm]Radiohead[/lastfm]‘s new album may still be up in the air, but the group has already committed a new track to the upcoming prison film Stone, which stars [lastfm]Robert De Niro[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Ed Norton[/lastfm].

Norton broke the news of the track while attending an L.A. screening.

“I’m friends with the guys in Radiohead,” Norton told audience members at a post-screening Q&A sponsored by Variety. “And [lastfm]Jonny Greenwood[/lastfm], who did the incredible score for [lastfm]Paul Anderson[/lastfm]‘s There Will Be Blood, met me in London a while back when [director] [lastfm]John [Curran][/lastfm] and I were developing the script.”

Norton added: “So given the spiritual ties in this film, I started talking to [Greenwood] about this idea: ‘What would you use to record this divine-like tuning sound? . . . Amazingly, they just unloaded tons and tons of files to us of these sound experiments that they had been doing. We just listened to them in awe.”

The film, which will also star [lastfm]Milla Jovovich[/lastfm] and[lastfm]Frances Conroy[/lastfm], is slated for release on October 8.
