Bodysong is the debut solo album by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. It is the soundtrack to the documentary film of the same name. It was released on October 27, 2003 in the UK and on February 24, 2004 in the United States. It was digitally remastered and reissued on CD and vinyl on 18 May 2018.[3] Bodysong fuses elements of jazz, electronic, classical, and experimental music. Greenwood's brother, Radiohead bassist Colin, plays bass on the album.[3]

The piece "Convergence" was used in Greenwood's score for the 2007 film There Will Be Blood. The inclusion of the track along with excerpts of another Greenwood piece, "Popcorn Superhet Receiver", disqualified the score from the 2008 Academy Awards, as scores cannot contain pre-existing music.[4]
