on December 05, 2011, 4:35pm

Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood is apparently contributing to the score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s forthcoming film The Master. As The Playlist points out, Oliver Weindling, founder of the British label Babel, recently tweeted that Greenwood recorded part of the soundtrack with British jazz group Zed-U.

According to IMDB, The Master is a “1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as ‘The Master’ whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.” Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as the title character, with Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams co-starring. A release date is set for sometime in 2013.

Of course, Greenwood is no stranger to film scores, having previously contributed his talents to There Will Be BloodNorwegian Wood, and  We Need To Talk About Kevin. The guitarist also recently teamed with of avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki for an album of original compositions.
