'Norwegian Wood' Soundtrack Featuring Radiohead Guitarist Gets U.S. Release

In a confluence of cool, Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood serenades viewers during the film adaptation of Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. The film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival last September, features a score by the guitarist. Both the movie and the music have yet to come to the U.S., but Pitchfork reports that come March at least the film's soundtrack will be available to fans:

If you're in the U.S. and felt left out in the cold, you can stop scouring the Internet for import copies: Nonesuch will release the soundtrack on March 8.
