Radiohead frontman turned down Paul McCartney duet

The ex-Beatle tried to get Thom Yorke to sing with him

Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that he asked Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke to record a duet with him – but Yorke turned him down.

McCartney explained that Yorke, who famously duetted with PJ Harvey in 2000 on her song ‘This Mess We’re In’, said he now wasn’t happy working on music other than that made with his own band and his solo material.

Speaking on Channel 4’s ‘T4’ programme, McCartney said: “My daughter was putting an album together and she put us in touch. I asked Thom to do a duet, but he said he couldn’t because he only felt happy working on his own and Radiohead’s material.”

Yorke released a solo album, ‘The Eraser’, in 2006.
