“I’m over the moon about all of that,” he told NME. “The music has always been really important historically, and I was really keen to bring a dramatic score into it. We’re using that much more in this season. It’s a much heavier season so the score is taking things in a very different direction.”
Yorke released his last solo album ‘ANIMA’ in 2019, and has since been sharing new music as part of various projects. Last year, he debuted a new outfit called The Smile with Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner, with the trio performing for the first time at Glastonbury’s Live At Worthy Farm livestream.
