Thom Yorke has written a new solo track in support of a Greenpeace campaign for an Antarctic Sanctuary.
Watch a video for “Hands Off The Antarctic” below:
“There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity’s footprint,” said Yorke. “This track is about stopping the relentless march of those heavy footsteps. The Antarctic is a true wilderness and what happens there affects us all. That’s why we should protect it.”
