JONNY GREENWOOD - PHANTOM THREAD OST VINYL (2LP GATEFOLD)
Release Date: 20th April 2018
Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood's Gold Globe-nominated score for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread, is now available on vinyl! The eighteen compositions that make up the score were recorded with a sixty-member string orchestra conducted by Robert Ziegler. Such is the quality and important of Greenwood's score - it features more heavily in the film than any of his previous scores. It includes beautiful arrangements on piano and strings that set a subtle and stylistic setting for what pans out throughout the film. This is quite possibly his greatest film score to-date!

"Nonesuch release Jonny Greenwood’s Golden Globe–nominated score to Paul Thomas Anderson’s new feature film, Phantom Thread. Phantom Thread is set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, where renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants, and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. With Phantom Thread, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis. The film’s soundtrack includes eighteen compositions by Greenwood. It was recorded in London with a sixty-member string orchestra conducted by Robert Ziegler and is featured more prominently in the film than any of Greenwood’s scores have been before. In addition to the Golden Globe nomination, the Phantom Thread soundtrack’s many other accolades to date include the Best Score prizes from film critics’ associations in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and St. Louis."
