Recorded in Graham’ home studio in Summer 2017 the album was written, composed and performed by Coxon and marks Coxon’s original soundtrack debut. The first track to be released from the album is titled Walking All Day
The project saw Coxon write over 40 original pieces for the show. He said:
“There were days were 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.”
The End of the F****ing World is an eight part darkly comic TV series based on the 2011 graphic novel by Charles Forsman which follows teenage runaways James and Alyssa (Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden) as they embark on a road trip across England. Directed by Jonathan Entwhislte and Lucy Tcherniak, the critically acclaimed series is described by Noisey as “Richard Ayoade’s Submarine meets David Lynch’s Wild At Heart with a splash of Black Mirror’s bleakness and ink-black humour thrown in.”
