Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood Presents “Spencer” Soundtrack With “Crucifix”
Jonny Greenwood shared “Crucifix”, the first preview of his soundtrack from Pablo Larraín’s upcoming film, Spencer. The soundtrack is released on November 12 via Mercury KX.
Spencer stars Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana on a Christmas weekend in the ’90s, as she questioned her choice to marry Prince Charles. “Diana decided that her marriage to Prince Charles was not working and that she had to move away from a path that put her in line to one day become queen,” Deadline reveals from the script, which is written by Steven Knight.
“Crucifix” is a classical tune with a string quartet and a harpsichord. It captures the romantic agony of the film, but adds a modern twist. Either way, Greenwood makes cellos, violins and harpsichords feel like a modern synth. Hugh Brun directed the new song.
Listen to “Crucifix” below.
The instrumental score should be “a poignant accompaniment to genre music that combines free jazz and classical baroque”.
In August, the first trailer for Spencer has been freed. In the clip, Stewart’s resemblance to Princess Diana is quite eerie. Stewart makes a place on the portrayal facing Jack Farthing as Prince Charles. The cast also includes big names like Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins and Richard Sammel.
” Mrs ? They’re waiting for you, ”someone says after knocking on the bathroom door, where Stewart stares dramatically at himself in the mirror.
