Peter on Passion

Passion is the music created by Peter for Martin Scorsese’s film The Last Temptation of Christ.

Watch Peter discuss what the album means to him in this interview recorded in 2002.

Released the year after the film, Passion features additional music than was included in the film; this extra material was the result of Peter continuing to record and to resolve “unfinished ideas”, hence the later arrival of the record.

The album has been half-speed remastered for vinyl, alongside Peter’s other work for film (Birdy & Long Walk Home), and will be released on 28 July 2017.
