Ry Cooder talks to Uncut about his soundtrack work in the new issue, dated November 2014 and out now.

The guitarist and composer, speaking as he prepares to release a boxset of some of his film scores from 1980 onwards, suggests he may even return to soundtracks, after some encouragement from his son.

“He’s after me to do this work again,” explains Cooder. “He said, ‘You’re missing the boat. People are copying you right and left. All these TV shows you never watch…’

“So we went to see a film agent… I’d like to take a shot again. It’s good work. I’d like to make some money sometime.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
