New double-A side single will be available soon
News of a Yorke single featuring two new compositions surfaced on Tuesday (September 1), with the frontman now confirming that a double-A side featuring the songs ‘FeelingPulledApartbyHorses’ and ‘The Hollow Earth’ are set for release.
He posted a message on the official Radiohead website, Radiohead.com, explaining that the single will be available from September 21 to order from the site and shops as a 12-inch vinyl single and download.
Both songs were produced by long-time band producer Nigel Godrich.
Multi-instrumentalist Yorke explained that although the songs were being released under his name, ‘FeelingPulledApartbyHorses’ was actually co-written and played with Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. He described the song as “a radical rework of an old tune that’s been kicking around without a home since 2001”.
He wrote that ‘The Hollow Earth’ was a “bass menace that was born out of the [2006 solo album] ‘The Eraser’ period, but needed a little more time”.
Following the vinyl release, the single will be available as a regular download from October 6.
