Listen to Mark Pritchard’s Somber Thom Yorke Collaboration ‘Beautiful People’
At the beginning of the month, we learned Mark Pritchard enlisted Thom Yorke for one of several collaborations that will appear on his forthcoming full-length Under the Sun. The English electronic producer has now shared that joint venture, “Beautiful People.” Take a listen up above.
“The original instrumental to ‘Beautiful People’ is a personal song about loss, hopelessness and chaos, but ultimately the message is love and hope,” Pritchard said in a press release. “Thom’s contribution to this collaboration captured perfectly what the piece is about. I will be forever grateful to have worked with such an immense talent.”
Under the Sun is due out May 13 via Warp. In addition to the Radiohead frontman, the LP also boasts contributions from Bibio and Linda Perhacs. Previously, Pritchard debuted lead single “Sad Alron” (listen below).
Radiohead are also working on a new album, but it has yet to receive a release date or any other details. (Although some fans believe the band nonchalantly unveiled the album artwork on their Facebook page.) However, the band has announced a world tour behind their King of Limbs follow-up. Those dates kick off in May and take the English alt-rockers to the U.S. in July.
