New Music and Touring Updates with The Smile

Thom Yorke’s original score for Daniele Luchetti’s film Confidenza will be released digitally on April 26, with vinyl and CD editions following on July 12. The soundtrack features the single Knife Edge, accompanied by a music visual starring Elio Germano and Federica Rosellini, with footage edited by Confidenza editor Ael Dallier Vega.

The score also includes a b-side track titled Prize Giving. Yorke teased the intro track The Big City in February as part of his playlist for The Smile’s BBC 6 Music Artist in Residence series.

Produced by Sam Petts-Davies, Confidenza sees Yorke collaborating with the London Contemporary Orchestra and a jazz ensemble including Robert Stillman and fellow The Smile bandmate Tom Skinner. Yorke’s previous full-length score was for Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 Suspiria remake, earning a GRAMMY nomination. He has also contributed music to Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn and wrote tracks for the series finale of Peaky Blinders.

Yorke has been touring with The Smile (Tom Skinner, Jonny Greenwood, Thom Yorke), who released their second studio album Wall Of Eyes in January.
