Various Artists - Orfeu Negro: Original Film Soundtrack
This is from a fantastic 1950s film that exposed Brazilian music to the outside world. It's the story of Orpheus set to Brazilian carnival, and it's very beautiful, melancholic, and full of these really captivating rhythms. I got into it first on tour doing OK Computer, a time where I felt very lost, personally and emotionally, which felt ridiculous when I was on the top of the world with my band. Inside, I needed to sort my shit out, and this album allowed me to cry. A few years later, my first son kicked for the first time when he heard his, and that's why we called him Salvador.
