Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' score to the Netflix film Blonde, based on a novel by Joyce Carol Oates, written and directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Ana de Armas.
Blonde boldly reimagines the life of one of Hollywood's most enduring icons, Marilyn Monroe. From her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements, Blonde blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves. The film also stars Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.
Cave and Ellis reflect on the making of the score: "Working with Andrew Dominik is always a challenging, but ultimately mind-blowing experience. Creating the score for this terrifying and complex reimagining of the Marilyn Monroe story was no different and, as always, it was a complete privilege to work with him. The darkest of films with a gorgeous spiritual score."
Dominik described the track "Pearly" as "Pure yearning, always coming and never arriving, great beauty just out of reach."
