Thom Yorke shares full details of ‘Confidenza’ soundtrack and music video for new song ‘Knife Edge’


Thom Yorke has shared full details of the forthcoming Confidenza soundtrack and the first taster from the record ‘Knife Edge’.

In January, it was revealed that the Radiohead and The Smile frontman was composing original music for the film (which translates to “Trust”) from Italian director Daniele Luchetti, based on the book by Domenico Starnone.

Now, it has been confirmed that he has worked on the soundtrack with the London Contemporary Orchestra alongside a jazz ensemble which includes The Smile and Sons Of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner.

It is set to drop digitally this Friday (April 26) with a release set for vinyl and CD on July 12. You can pre-order/pre-save all formats here. Yorke has also shared the first song from the record, the video for which you can view below.

The film stars Elio Germano, Vittoria Puccini and Isabella Ferrari, and follows Pietro Vella who works in a run down Roman high school. A synopsis reads: “He strongly believes he can help students strive for a better future and Teresa, and bright and rebellious student, is totally taken with him and his lessons. Then, a few years later, they meet up again and get romantically entangled. Teresa insists they must share their deepest secrets to bond for life. But as soon as Pietro really opens up, the relationship ends.”

Confidenza is the latest score Yorke has composed, having first ventured into film music on 2018’s Suspiria. He’s also contributed to soundtracks for Motherless Brooklyn, Children Of Men and Vanilla Sky.

In a three-star review of Suspiria upon its release in 2018, NME wrote: “Yorke has big shoes to fill for his first foray into soundtrack work: Goblin’s original score is so famed, loved and damn iconic that there is a heavy expectation weighing upon him. His is first heard in Act 1, through a plaintive piano melody housing a pining falsetto. It’s all rather sonorous and innocuous, bearing passing semblance to his band’s, ‘Pyramid Song’, and his remaining work is sturdy and evocative, if not barnstorming in its residual impression.”

Yorke had previously admitted to being “jealous” of his Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood‘s work on film scores.

Greenwood meanwhile recently announced How To Disappear, his new photo book that documents the bassist’s life with Radiohead.
