Radiohead set to cover Peter Gabriel's 'Wallflower'

Thom Yorke and co to cover the 1982 song

Radiohead are set to cover Peter Gabriel's 1982 song 'Wallflower'.

The songwriter recently covered Radiohead's 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' on his new album 'Scratch My Back', with Thom Yorke and co now set to return the favour as part of Gabriel's 'song swap' project, reports

"Thom wanted to do a version of 'Wallflower' which I'm very curious to hear," Gabriel said in a podcast on his website "I think that was an important track for him when he was 14."

No release date has been given for the cover, but 'Scratch My Back', which also features covers including Elbow's 'Mirrorball' and Regina Spektor's 'Apres Moi', was released on January 25.

Meanwhile, Radiohead recently played a one-off show in aid of Haiti's earthquake survivors, where they raised over $500,000 for the cause.
