Also Features Three Songs By Can


Fans of Radiohead and guitarist Jonny Greenwood take note. Your next purchase to fill out your completist catalog is likely going to be coming from overseas as Greenwood's score for Anh Hung Tran's "Norwegian Wood" has received a Japanese release.

The film, starring Rinko Kikuchi and Kenichi Matsuyama, and based on the book by Haruki Murakami, is a coming-of-age story told in flashback, spurred by the sitar strings of The Beatles' title song. It played at Venice and TIFF to lukewarm reviews, and hits theaters in Japan next month. Like Greenwood's score for Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood," this piece will also be based on a previously existing work, a composition called "Dogwood" which the musician wrote for the BBC Concert Orchestra and debuted earlier in the year at Maida Vale Studios. The soundtrack is rounded out by three songs by the excellent krautrockers Can.

You head on over to Amazon Japan now to add the disc to your shopping cart. No word yet on a North American release for either the film or soundtrack. Check out the tracklisting after the jump:
