Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood previews ‘Spencer’ soundtrack with ‘Crucifix’

Jonny Greenwood has shared “Crucifix,” the first preview of his soundtrack for Pablo Larraín’s forthcoming film, Spencer. The soundtrack is out on November 12th via Mercury KX.

Spencer stars Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana during a Christmas weekend in the ’90s when she was questioning her choice in marrying Prince Charles. “Diana decided her marriage to Prince Charles wasn’t working and that she needed to veer from a path that put her in line to one day be queen,” Deadline reveals of the script, which is written by Steven Knight.

“Crucifix” is a classical tune with a string quartet and harpischord. It captures the romantic agony of the flick, but adds a modern twist. Somehow, Greenwood makes cellos, violins, and harpischords feel like a modern synth. Hugh Brun conducted the new song.

Listen to “Crucifix” below.

The instrumental score is set to be “a poignant accompaniment to the genre bending music that combines free jazz and classical baroque.”

Back in August, the first trailer for Spencer was released. In the clip, Stewart’s resemblance to Princess Diana is quite uncanny. Stewart does a spot on portrayal opposite Jack Farthing as her Prince Charles. The cast also features big names like Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins, and Richard Sammel.

“Ma’am? They’re waiting for you,” someone says after knocking on the door to the bathroom, where Stewart is looking dramatically in the mirror.
