Thom Yorke Debuts Haunting New Song, ‘Villain,’ During New York Fashion Week Show
Thom Yorke has contributed a new, original song as part of New York City’s ongoing Fashion Week.
Yorke’s “Villain” debuted at Rag & Bone’s runway show earlier this week, and you can now listen to the song in the video up above. It’s a haunting eight minutes that opens with just piano before, according to Pitchfork, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus enters.
"Villain" is the latest solo material to surface from Yorke, who also recently played a handful of his very first shows in support of last year’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes. On top of that, Yorke scored the Broadway play, Old Times, which will launch previews tomorrow (Sept. 17) before debuting on Oct. 6.
Yorke and the rest of his Radiohead bandmates are also hard at work on their ninth album. The English rockers were recently photographed in the studio with longtime producer Nigel Godrich, and drummer Philip Selway said the band will launch themselves into the recording process this fall in hopes of completing their follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs.
