Thom Yorke's soundtrack for fashion show appears online - listen

A new soundtrack for a fashion show scored by Radiohead's Thom Yorke has been posted online.

The singer teamed up with long-time collaborator and producer Nigel Godrich to provide the music for the Rag and Bone fashion label's event in Manhattan earlier this week. The soundtrack can now be streamed at the designer's Facebook page.

Yorke previously provided music for a show by the fashion label in September 2011, with two of the tracks he produced - titled 'Twist' and 'Stuck Together' - subsequently surfacing on the internet. The latter track also featured a contribution from Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood.

Earlier this month (January 17), the frontman made the headlines after warning Prime Minister David Cameron against using any of his music in election campaigns, threatening to "sue the living shit out of him" if he did. "Politics is not a fun thing to write about," he said. "I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron. I can’t believe he'd like [Radiohead’s last album] 'The King Of Limbs' much. But I also equally think, who cares?"

Thom Yorke is currently working on his Atoms For Peace project, which features Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, super-producer Nigel Godrich and percussionist Mauro Refosco. The group's debut album, 'Amok', is set for release on February 25.

Speaking recently about whether the group would be playing any live shows, Godrich said that UK and European concerts were on the cards, but that they were "still being figured out". Yorke ruled out playing this summers' Glastonbury, explaining: "We won’t have got our shit together by then."

Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
