Thom Yorke's brother Andy Yorke is set to release his debut album as a solo artist next month.

'Simple', released on July 14, is the first release from Yorke since he disbanded his group, The Unbelievable Truth, in 2000.

The band only released two albums, 1998's 'Almost Here' and 2000's 'Sorrythankyou', before Yorke quit music to live in Russia.

His former bandmates, Nigel Powell and Jason Moulster, backed him up on the album on drums and bass, respectively.

The singer-songwriter's album launch takes place at London's 229 on July 16.
