Speaking to Rolling Stone, Norton praised Yorke for his ability to “weave together personal anguish and the crushing politics” of the movie’s 1950s setting. “[The song] rises organically out of the story of the film and it gives you shivers, it’s really a special thing when that happens,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Motherless Brooklyn – also starring director and writer Norton – is set for release in November. It will be premiered at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival next month.
Earlier this month, Thom Yorke shared a new EP compiling four remixes of his ANIMA’ song ‘Not The News’. The collection features a six-minute extended mix of the track as well as reworks from Mark Pritchard, Clark and Equiknoxx with Time Cow & Gavsborg.
In other news, Flea has revealed further details on his long-awaited memoir. Titled Acid for the Children, the 400-page autobiography will arrive on November 4 and features a foreword by Patti Smith.
