Radiohead has written a new song for the film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s latest book, Choke, at the request of the film’s director Clark Gregg. This new song is supposedly going to play over the film’s closing credits… I guess using “Exit Music (for a film)” was just a bit too obvious? Nevertheless, apparently Radiohead will also be composing ambient music for the film’s score as well.
In a recent interview Palahniuk said, “Clark Gregg…knew that I’d written Choke while listening to Pablo Honey, with ‘Creep’, over and over and over. So Clark got Radiohead to contribute a song; to write a song for the very end of the movie, the final credits. Apparently Radiohead liked the movie so much, they’ve written the score, most of the ambient music throughout it.”
Palahniuk also wrote Fight Club, the 1996 feature film adaptation is well known for using Pixies’ “Where is my mind”.
