After Radiohead’s “Lotus Flower” video, the world needed more Thom Yorke dancing. In the video for “Ingenue,” a song from Amok, the debut album of Yorke’s new band Atoms For Peace Yorke and contemporary dancer Fukiko Takase, in identical old- suits and ponytails, get down in an empty theater.
…debut single from Thom Yorke side project w/Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, all-star session drummer Joey Waronker, and Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco. Read more about Atoms For Peace debut album HERE
…Original track appears on Radiohead’s “The King of Limbs” from 2011. The remix was released on the same day as the Radiohead album went online. Never officially released due to its Petula Clark – “You And I” sample. It was first released on the Radiohead website At Ease. It was later featured as track-of-the-week by Allison Stewart in the Washington Post. - mojib.net
Radiohead made 2 new songs available for download yesterday and FREE for fans who purchased King of Limbs.

Right, that’s most of you covered, apologies to those we’ve missed out … ok, so here are two tracks for your listening pleasure:
Supercollider and The Butcher. We released these as a limited edition 2 track 12inch vinyl to mark Independent Record Store Day last Saturday, April 16 … so in case you missed out and didn’t get a copy here they are.
It’s a thank you for being SO supportive of what we do …
p.s. This is not part of a new loyalty points scheme, a Radiohead clubcard or even an air miles redeemable reward type thing…
It is just a big old-fashioned thank you!
Hope your Spring/Autumn is good.
Ed, Colin, Jonny, Philip & Thom
FYI… ‘The Butcher’ was recorded and mixed during ‘The King of Limbs’ sessions, but we couldn’t make it work on the album; ‘Supercollider’ was started during those sessions and finished off in March of this year.
In Radiohead’s video for “House of Cards”, no cameras or lights were used. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data. The final result is beautiful and haunting. Watch it HERE
Though I certainly understand the business decision, and thoroughly enjoy the resulting song, this image best describes how I feel about artists I love contributing to the soundtrack of a movie I find silly (as does THIS).
Louis Armstrong vs. Radiohead - What A Wonderful Surprise (Overdub Bootleg)
Louis Armstong and Radiohead probably aren’t the first pairing that comes to mind when someone mentions Mash-Ups, and I may be biased since they’re two of my favorite artists but I was surprised to hear how well these were made to work together.
