Radiohead's Thom Yorke has teamed up with the band's sleeve designer Stanley Donwood to try and create a human sculpture in Brighton next Saturday (November 27).

Yorke revealed the project, which is a collaboration with climate campaign organisation 350 Earth, on Radiohead's website, Radiohead.com/deadairspace.

He wrote a message in an attempt to recruit "2,000 people who want to be part of [a] human King Canute [Viking king who ruled England from 1016–1035] type image facing the sea that is visible from space" at 11am (GMT) next Saturday. The exact location of the meet-up is yet to be announced.

As outlined on Earth.350.org, the first 2,000 people to RSVP to the request will be guaranteed a spot in the sculpture. Those taking part have been asked to wear black and dress warmly.

A message on the site explains: "Please also note that we will create the human sculpture even if it rains and is stormy, since weather is a central character in this art piece. Yes, this sounds mad but since we're recreating the story of King Canute it works."

See Earth.350.org for more information.

Last week (November 15) Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood confirmed that the band are still working on the follow-up to 2007's 'In Rainbows' album.
