Radiohead drummer Philip Selway has announced a new solo album, which is the soundtrack to the film Let Me Go, and has shared the album’s title track. Let Me Go is due out digitally September 15 to coincide with the film’s release date, and physically October 27, both via Bella Union. Below is “Let Me Go,” one of two songs on the album that Selway sings lead vocals on, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art. Also below is the film’s trailer.

Lou Rhodes from Lamb sings on one track, “Walk,” and is also featured in the movie singing in a nightclub scene. Polly Steele directed Let Me Go, which a press release says “is a story about mothers and daughters, loss and mistrust, the ramifications of a World War II crime, secrets, trauma, and lingering ghosts.”

A press release further describes the film as such: “Let Me Go is based on Austrian-born Helga Schneider’s memoir of the same name. She was just four years old when her mother Traudi walked out, never to return, in order to train as a guard in Germany’s concentration camps. Helga never knew the truth until, as an adult, she decided to track her mother down in Vienna, to discover not only the horror of the past, but also of Traudi’s unashamedly proud memories of the most notorious camp of all, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Helga wouldn’t return to Vienna until thirty years later, when news arrived: Traudi was dying. Helga returned, for the sake of closure, and hoping her mother had finally repented.”

Selway released a solo album, Weatherhouse, in 2014 via Bella Union.

Radiohead released their acclaimed latest album, A Moon Shaped Pool, last year. It landed at #2 on Under the Radar‘s Top 100 Albums of 2016 list.
