A possible reason The King of Limbs is so damn short: yet another high profile Thom Yorke collaboration has been revealed. The rapper known for being unknown, DOOM, announced the collabo in an interview with 3D World (via Hip Hop Update).
DOOM said he is “doing some stuff with Thom Yorke… we’re working on some duets, some duet songs and shit. Just like preliminary shit but we’ll probably end up doing a whole record together.” The rapper added, “He’s cool – he got a lot of ill ass ideas and shit, you know.” That’s what we’ve heard, too.
No word yet on a release date, but we will be on that like white on rice, or whatever that expression is.
This is not Yorke and DOOM’s first connection; Radiohead’s musically diverse vocalist contributed a remix of DOOM’s “Gazzillion Ear” as a bonus track for his 2009 album Born Like This.
According to the interview, DOOM is also finishing up a new Madvillain album, as well as putting out an LP with Adult Swim on Williams Street Records.
