    Jonny Greenwood's "Phantom Thread" Wins Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Film Score

    Congratulations to Jonny Greenwood, whose score to Paul Thomas Anderson's film Phantom Thread won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Film Score. The awards ceremony for the Ivors, which celebrate, honor, and reward excellence in UK and Irish songwriting and composing, was held in a ceremony in London earlier today.

    Phantom Thread is Greenwood and Anderson's fourth collaboration together. The film, set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, and Vicky Krieps. The soundtrack includes eighteen compositions by Greenwood and was recorded in London with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Contemporary Orchestra. IndieWire calls it "a masterpiece," naming it the year's best, and one of the century's best as well. To pick up a copy of the album, head to iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Anderson and Greenwood's previous collaborations include the soundtrack for Academy Award–winning There Will Be Blood (2007), The Master (2012), and Inherent Vice (2014), all released by Nonesuch. Nonesuch also released Greenwood's score for Norwegian Wood, his collaboration with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, his performance of Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint, and Junun, a collaboration among Greenwood, composer/musician Shye Ben Tzur, and a group of Indian musicians called the Rajasthan Express the recording sessions for which Anderson documented in a film of the same name.

    Greenwood is the guest on NPR's All Songs Considered this week. He talks with NPR's Bob Boilen and Tom Huizenga about his own music—his There Will Be Blood soundtrack and two new pieces just given their premiere in a NPR's Tiny Desk Concert—and shares some works that have inspired him, by New Order, Messiaen, Penderecki, and Reich. You can hear the episode here.
