Jonny Greenwood Confirms Supergrass (Not Radiohead) Appear on 'Inherent Vice' Soundtrack
Published Oct 06, 2014Radiohead may be back at work in the studio, but they won't be appearing on the Inherent Vice soundtrack.
As previously reported, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has teamed up with Paul Thomas Anderson once again to work on the score to the director's upcoming film Inherent Vice. Following a press screening of the film over the weekend, rumours circulated that a new Radiohead track titled "Spooks" appeared in the film, but Greenwood has taken to Twitter to clarify the matter.
In response to a Pitchfork report about the new Radiohead song appearing in the film, Greenwood explained that it was a "half idea" written by him that was passed along to Supergrass because it was "not very Radiohead."
@pitchfork except it's really a half idea we never made work live. I rewrote it and got supergrass to play it. It's good, but not very rh!— Jonny Greenwood (@JnnyG) October 6, 2014
He then went on to correct himself, saying that it's technically only two-thirds of Supergrass that play on the track.
So, mystery solved. Written by Greenwood, "Spooks" appears in Inherent Vice, but is performed by two out of three members of Britpop band Supergrass.
The film is set for wide release on January 9, and you can see the trailer below.
