The debut original soundtrack score from Graham Coxon – to accompany Channel 4/Netflix series ‘The End of the F***ing World’ – will be released as a digital download on 26th January, ahead of a vinyl release scheduled for March 2018.
The 16-track album, recorded in Graham’s home studio last summer, includes new songs as well as the original score, was written, composed and performed by Coxon and marks the musician’s original music debut for film and television. The first track to be released from the album is titled ‘Walking All Day’, available as a digital download now. Listen on Spotify here.
The project saw Coxon write over 40 original pieces for the show. He said:
“There were days where I wrote and finished three or four new songs in a single day. It was mental, I’ve never worked to that kind of schedule before. But the creative process around observation and interpretation is one that is very familiar to me. I feel very comfortable reacting to things and adding my bit. And this show particularly appealed to both my appreciation of dark music as well as my dark sense of humour. It felt like a good fit.”
Director Jonathan Entwhistle said: “He is my all-time guitar idol. Watching Graham’s music videos taught me how to play guitar as a kid. I bought a Fender Mustang just because he had one in the ‘Coffee and TV’ video.”
