Goldfrapp have announced that they are set to score the film for the upcoming biopic about John Lennon.

Based on the book, Imagine This: Growing Up With My Brother John Lennon, by his half sister, Julia Baird - the film is about Lennon’s childhood and adolescence.

"We have written the score for a film called "Nowhere Boy". It's about John Lennon as a boy"; wrote Alison Goldfrapp on her bands' blog.

"It’s truly amazing that they gave us the opportunity to do this. We are all really excited about going to Abbey Road studios soon to record the strings with the full orchestra."

As for the next Goldfrapp album, a follow up to 2008’s Seventh Tree, she also gave a quick update on how it was going.

"Now our work on the film is almost finished, we will carry on writing the Goldfrapp album."

Nowhere Boy, which features Kristin Scott Thomas and screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh, who wrote the script for the Joy Division film Control, will premiere on October 29 as part of the London Film Festival.
