Thom Yorke Pens Three New Songs for Tibet Documentary



Director Dirk Simon has spent the past 7 years filming and interviewing for upcoming film When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun, a documentary about the ongoing, and seemingly endless, plight of the Free Tibet movement, but all his hard work is about to pay off brilliantly, as
this truly epic project is set to include not only an all-star cast of interviewees (Dennis Haysbert, Richard Gere, the 14th Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, etc.), but also new music from Thom Yorke, Damien Rice, and Philip Glass.


Thom Yorke wrote three new songs for a particular chapter of the film, Simon revealed to TwentyFourBit.
Take that, New Moon (they only got one song from the Radiohead frontman). But that’s not all: Damien Rice has also written a song for the documentary (his first new original composition to come out in quite a while) and composer Philip Glass has penned the main theme for the film, including a piece for a key “grand finale” sequence.

Those details alone should place this project into the “Best Documentary Soundtrack” category, but that only accounts for the new music to be featured. Simon also told us that
Björk, Eric Clapton, UNKLE, DJ Spooky, and Rob Dougan, aka Rob D, have also contributed existing music for the score.
Amazing.

We’ll keep you updated as new details emerge, but in the meantime, check out the trailer and official site here.

THREE NEW SONGS! THREE NEW THOM YORKE SONGS!
Also, they mention that Bjork is contributing "existing" music. Is that existing music we haven't heard before or...?
It would be pretty epic if Thom contributed vocals to a new Bjork song (again) or vice versa.
