  • Warp Records has announced plans to release Clark's score of crime series The Last Panthers. News of Clark's involvement with the series surfaced in November. The Last Panthers, which stars Samantha Morton, Tahar Rahim and John Hurt, was broadcast at the end of 2015, and also featured music from David Bowie ("Blackstar" was its theme song). The forthcoming soundtrack is due out digitally March 18th, and compiles 19 pieces Clark composed for the series. A vinyl version will follow on April 29th. "I was quite shocked when I heard all the final cues from Panthers, lined up in the exact order they appear in the show, in a clinical linear fashion," Clarks says about the soundtrack release. "I thought, 'there's no way that's an album as it is.’ There were about 60 tracks for a start. I felt like I had to rescue it from being a conventional exposition of the music in the series, so I went on an immense chiselling/editing mission and also started writing new material. I think it works as a standalone album, it's a continuous slab of liquid melancholy, it resonates through harmony and texture. Rhythm felt less important."
