Radiohead‘s THOM YORKE sings a duet with POLLY HARVEY on her new album and provides backing vocals for two more tracks, nme.com can reveal.
Following speculation that the two had collaborated, Harvey rang nme.com to explain that she wrote the duet, called ‘This Mess We’re In’, specifically with Yorke in mind. She said of Yorke: “He just came over to the studio for a couple of days. He’s an extremely wonderful musician, he came up with some very unusual ideas for the songs. He’s just really inspiring. I learnt a lot from him.”
Yorke also sings on two more tracks, ‘Beautiful Feeling’ and ‘One Line’. Other track titles include ‘Big Exit’, ‘Kamikaze’ and ‘The Whores Hustle And The Hustlers Whore’.
