Thom Yorke counts Ryuichi Sakamoto and Low as favourite records in new 60-minute mix

The Radiohead frontman headed up BBC Radio 6 over the weekend (28 October) to perform tracks from his debut film score Suspiria.

In a radio session hosted by Mary Anne Hobbs, Thom Yorke performed Open Again, Suspirium and Unmade from his newly-released soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria remake. He also played the previously unreleased track Suspiria Solo Glass Harmonica and a hour-long mix comprised of his favourite atmospheric records. The mix features two tracks by Ryuichi Sakamoto, entitled fullmoon and andata, taken from the 2017 LP Async. Furthermore, the tracklist includes the Low track Always Trying to Work it Out from this year’s Double Negative, and Evensong from Sarah Davachi’s album Gave in Rest.

Yorke released Suspiria last week, and it marks his first ever film score. Earlier this year, the musician told The Hollywood ReporterSuspiria is one of those legendary soundtracks. It took a few months to even contemplate the idea.”

“It was one of those moments in your life where you want to run away but you know you’ll regret it if you do. I watched the original film several times, and I loved it because it was of that time, an incredibly intense soundtrack.”
