Radiohead to Score Linklater Film
As plans develop for Radiohead to get out on the road for a summer tour, the band has confirmed that it will also contribute music to the soundtrack for director Richard Linklater's film, A Scanner Darkly.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, a spokesperson for Warner Independent Pictures revealed that the band's contribution to the film extends even farther than previously believed. Radiohead won't score the entire film -- which stars Keanu Reeves -- they said, but the film will "feature music by Radiohead, including a brand-new track from lead singer Thom Yorke's upcoming solo release."
No further information on Yorke's solo project was revealed and so far, Yorke himself is keeping mum on the details.
A Scanner Darkly, an adaptation of Philip K. Dick's sci-fi book, will hit theaters July 7, according to Pitchfork. The band has announced a set of tour dates, but none on this continent just yet.

Thanks for the info Krixy!
cannot wait for this movie..i hope it has a wide release..
cool, I think, why can't I remember any of their songs??? I've gone brain dead....what are some of their songs?
May I remain sceptical about this? It's been confirmed as a rumor before, in December 2005,
and I still think it's one of those urban myths that get recycled again and again.
"Previously believed" - it was reported then they'd do the whole soundtrack, which was denied by the band.
"Extends even farther"... What, two soundtracks now?
I'd be happy to see, or rather hear, any contribution at all...
Krix, a free sneak preview of A Scanner Darkly is going to be playing in Waltham, MA at Brandeis University's "Leonard bernstein festival of Creative Arts" April 30th. It's open to the public, but the seating is limited to 200.
Spread the word, maybe other people closeby can attend.
