Jonny Greenwood, Krzysztof Penderecki Announce Album

January 20, 2012

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood announced details for his latest side project today: a self-titled collaborative LP with Grammy Award-winning Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki. Included in the 15-track set are previously performed orchestral compositions Popcorn Superhet Receiver and 48 Responses to Polymorphia by Greenwood and Penderecki’s 1960 piece Threnody for the victims of Hiroshima in addition to Polymorphia.

Notably, both Greenwood’s Popcorn Superhet Receiver and Penderecki’s Polymorphia made memorable appearances in the film world, with the former inspiring parts of the score to director Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood and the latter used in 1973 horror classic The Exorcist.

Arriving on March 13 via Nonesuch Records, the release of Jonny Greenwood / Krzysztof Penderecki will be celebrated with a live rendition at London’s Barbican Hall on the 22nd of that month. Today, you can preview the forthcoming collection by checking out the tracklist below:
