It was announced last year that Thom Yorke of Radiohead is scoring his first feature film, Suspiria. It's a remake of Dario Argento's 1977 Italian horror film of the same name. Now Yorke has announced details of the soundtrack album and shared a song from it, "Suspirium," which features vocals from Yorke. Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film) is due out October 26 via XL. It includes 25 original compositions by Yorke, including instrumental tracks and ones that are more traditionally song-like and feature vocals. Check out "Suspirium" below via an animated visual the song. Also below are the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as Yorke's upcoming tour dates.

Yorke wrote and arranged the score, which was recorded and produced by Yorke and Sam Petts-Davies. The score also features the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, as well as Yorke's son Noah Yorke on drums on "Has Ended" and "Volk," and Pasha Mansurov on solo flute on "Suspirium."  

Suspiria's first teaser trailer debuted in June and last month a new, longer trailer for the film was shared (watch the creepiness below again). Luca Guadgnino (Call Me By Your Name) has directed the new version, which stars Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, and Jessica Harper (the star of the 1977 original). It's due out nationwide November 2 via Amazon Studios, with New York and Los Angeles showings starting October 26.

Guadgnino had this to say about Yorke in a previous press release last year: "Thom's art transcends the contemporary. To have the privilege of his music and sound for Suspiria is a dream come true. The depth of his creation and artistic vision is so unique that our Suspiria will sound groundbreaking and will deeply resonate with viewers. Our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom."

Producers Marco Morabito and Brad Fischer also had this to say: "Thom Yorke has composed and performed some of the most iconic and transformative music in modern culture. To have him lend his talent to Suspiria is an extraordinary gift, both to us as filmmakers and to audiences, who have a remarkable, terrifying and emotionally stirring experience in store for them."

A previous press release described the plot of Suspiria as such: "Susie Bannion, a young American woman, travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in the year 1977. She arrives just as one of the Company's members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc, the Company's revolutionary artistic director, she befriends another dancer, Sara, who shares her suspicions that the Matrons, and the Company itself, may be harboring a dark and menacing secret."
