Listen to Car Seat Headrest’s Stripped-Down Cover of Radiohead’s ‘Pyramid Song’
Car Seat Headrest are prepping their album, Teens of Denial (a follow-up to last year’s Teens of Style), but frontman Will Toledo recently took a break from promoting his new material and shared his rendition of Radiohead’s “Pyramid Song.”
Toledo gives the Amnesiac track an acoustic, stripped-down makeover but still nails Thom Yorke's forlorn wail. On his Tumblr, the singer-songwriter described his version as “sloppy flamenco with missing string and AIM accompaniment.” Take a listen below and compare it to the original at the bottom of the page.
Teens of Denial is slated for a May 20 release via Matador. You can pre-order it on CD or vinyl at this location. So far, Toledo has already shared album singles “Vincent,” “Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales” and “Fill in the Blank.”
Radiohead, meanwhile, are working on their ninth full-length. Confirmed details regarding the album remain scarce, but Yorke and company are set to tour this summer. They're also booked for this year's Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and more festivals.
