The Social Network score

I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn’t work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I’ve always loved David’s work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on.

Months later, I’m happy to tell you we’re nearing the completion of this and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable.

As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we’re looking forward to the next phase – distilling the large amount of music we’ve written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that.

Speaking of the film… it’s really fucking good. And dark!

Hello

I just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to recently in my idle moments in Radiohead.
Over the past year or so, I’ve written and recorded an album which I’ve called Familial. It will be released on Bella Union on 30th August, except for USA and Canada, where it will be released on 31st August through Nonesuch.
If you’d like to download a free track from my album then please go to www.philipselway.com. The song is called By Some Miracle and is available now.
I’m also doing some shows and there’s information about those on the website too.
Thank you x

Philip

Watched Adventureland This Past Weekend

adventureland the movieGood movie.  I really enjoyed all the characters in it.  I have to admit, I was expecting a little more humor from these writers.  In all, it felt like a summer movie I might have saw growing up.  It was very refreashing.

Love,
John
