Published Oct 16, 2018Though 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."
Hear "Hands Off the Antarctic" in the player below.
Yorke's two-disc Suspiria soundtrack, meanwhile, will arrive on October 26 through XL Recordings.
