Celebrating the legacy of Robby Müller, the Dutch cinematographer who worked on 1984 cult classic Paris, Texas, the new album was designed as the score to Claire Pijman’s documentary on Müller, Living The Light.

Borrowing a vintage Japanese electric guitar for the album, the duo “tried to channel Müller’s love of the special light during ‘magic hour’, his love of moving images – from trains and cars, the sadness of certain architecture,” shares Jarmusch.

Some Music for Robby Müller follows Sacred Bones’ release of Jung Jae Il’s original score for Parasites.
