Thom Yorke Shares New Song 'Hands Off the Antarctic'
Though Thom Yorke has recently been rolling out selections from his Suspiria score, the Radiohead leader has now shifted gears to share a new solo single in collaboration with Greenpeace.

Titled "Hands Off the Antarctic," the gloomy instrumental pairs Yorke's electronics with black and white footage of landscapes and wildlife captured from a three-month Greenpeace expedition to the area.

"There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity's footprint," Yorke said in a statement. "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."

Yorke's two-disc Suspiria soundtrack, meanwhile, will arrive on October 26 through XL Recordings.
