Thom Yorke shares epic new song “Villain” — listen

on September 16, 2015, 9:40am

Recently, Thom Yorke debuted brand new music during solo gigs in the UK and Japan. The Radiohead frontman keeps the fresh material coming this week with a song called “Villain”.

Eerie and expansive, the eight-minute number alternates between dusky piano ballad and skittery IDM, with vocals provided by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.

The track premiered as part of the New York Fashion Week runway show for Rag & Bone. If you’ll recall, Yorke is no stranger to the clothing line; he and Nigel Godrich previously created a mix specifically for Rag & Bone back in 2011, and again in 2013.

Listen to “Villain” below.

In addition to his own solo material, he and the rest of the Radiohead gang look to be pretty busy in the studio as well; Phil Selway recently said the new album may be finished by the fall.
