Radiohead's Thom Yorke Composes Broadway Soundtrack: Radiohead News

(Prog) Radiohead mainman Thom Yorke has composed a soundtrack for the upcoming Broadway version of Harold Pinter's Old Times. Earlier this year, Yorke wrote an 18-hour soundtrack for an Australian exhibition and has been busy at work on his band's ninth album.

Along the way, the singer managed to find time to work with director Douglas Hodge on an updated score for the 1971 Pinter play. Yorke says: "It's been a pleasure working with Doug on my first stage production. I've enjoyed exploring through music the script's themes of love and memory as well as Pinter's rhythms, twists and turns."

Hodge adds: "The music Thom has written for Old Times gives an immediacy and a 'now-ness' to the show. The play itself is about memory and love - Thom's music works backwards and forwards and plays with time and repetition in the same way Pinter does." Read more here.
