Three days ago, we ran a story called "New Thom Yorke 12" on the Way?" about a new single from the Radiohead frontman. Well, we can get rid of that question mark. According to Thom himself, the two-track slab of vinyl is officially coming out September 21 at the band's W.A.S.T.E. store with purchasable downloads available the first week of October.
Writing on Radiohead's Dead Air Space blog, he gives us some background on the release:
Dear Sir or Madam
This is to inform you of the release of two more bits of work shortly.
They are loosely under the Thom Yorke name this time, although these days its all getting kind of blurry.
FeelingPulledApartbyHorses is written & played by Jonny and I and is a radical rework of an old tune thats been kicking around without a home since 2001? i think.
The Hollow Earth is a bass menace that was born out of the Eraser period but needed a little more time.
Both were produced by Nigel Godrich as ever. And mastered by Bob Ludwig.
They are being put out on 12" with sliced sleeve by Stanley and Tchock.
My sources tell me this will be available from the 21st of September if you're interested.. On sale in the w.a.s.t.e part of our website (with a gratis download.)
Or you can go buy it in a good record shop if you are lucky enough to have one near you.
Then later on there will be like a normal download thing i think around the 6th of Oct through the usual channels.
And so it goes. all the best
Really limited - get it soon, if you're going to.
