Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke dropped his 81-minute brainchild for Suspiria (the remake of the 1977 cult-followed supernatural horror film of the same name) on Friday (Oct. 26).

Yorke’s double-sided score contains contributions from the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, flutist Pasha Mansurov, and even his son, Noah, who played drums for two songs.

The 25-song soundtrack, in all its eerie glory, instantly transports listeners to the film’s haunting 1970s Berlin, Germany setting. The opening instrumental “A Storm That Took Everything” serves as a wary greeting with creepy violins and faint laughter.

Songs like “Has Ended” also allow the album to take on a slow, suspenseful rock feel. “I woke up in a city/ The soldiers had come home/ The eagle, it had landed/ His loud mouth was gone,” Yorke sings.

A collection of unsettling instrumentals, haunting traditionally structured songs and suspenseful interludes draw the album toward “The Epilogue," an ear-ringing conclusion that contains a solid minute of eerie feedback.
