    Tindersticks have had a long and fruitful relationship with French filmmaker Claire Denis dating back to the band's early years. The group's first soundtrack for Denis, Nénette Et Boni (1996), was also their third album, following two eponymous and now legendary Tindersticks full-lengths in the early 90s. Five more soundtracks have followed, tracking faithfully alongside Denis' own critically-acclaimed trajectory, marking one of the more fertile, consistent and resonant relationships between a director and a group of musicians in contemporary cinema.

    The set gathers all six of the Claire Denis soundtracks written and performed by Tindersticks or their members; Stuart A. Staples for L'Intrus and Dickon Hinchliffe for Vendredi Soir, alongside four others credited to the full band: Nénette et BoniTrouble Every Day35 Rhums and White Material.

    Four of the six soundtracks are previously unreleased – all of the film scores since 2002 are issued in this set for the first time. It is a subtle, beautiful body of work and an integral part of the Tindersticks oeuvre.
