Radiohead Guitarist Talks About 'Phantom Thread'
Earlier this year, Greenwood opened up about Phantom Thread and explained how the album came to be.
"We were talking about male grooming, so I told him about Beau Brummell, this regency dandy who spent all his money on his - quite understated - appearance. Brummell used to have visitors every morning coming and watch him prepare for the day by dressing just so. Obsessively putting every item of clothing on, adjusting each detail until it was perfect - and starting again if it wasn't. All this, to a room of spectators," explained Greenwood.
The guitarist said that he also spent so much time finding the right score for Daniel Day-Lewis's character Reynolds. Greenwood said that he imagined what Reynolds would have listened to years ago, and that's how he came up with the music for the album.
He also said that creating music for the Phantom Thread is very different from making a record with his band.
