The project, which dropped on Friday (August 2), features a six-minute extended mix of the track as well as reworks from Mark Pritchard, Clark and Equiknoxx with Time Cow & Gavsborg. Each producer brings something fresh to the table, transforming Yorke’s mesmerising original into addictive dance anthems for different occasions. The EP was also available in limited-edition white label 12”, which are now sold out. Stream it below.
‘Not the News’ appears on ‘ANIMA’, the Radiohead frontman’s third solo album and first since 2014’s ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’. In a four-star review of Yorke’s latest record, NME said: “This is an artfully produced fever dream of an album that, in its doominess, suggests we should continue to pay credence to the prophet Thom Yorke.”
In other Yorke news, the singer was recently recruited to write a new song for Edward Norton’s upcoming film Motherless Brooklyn. According to Norton, the song is an “old-world melancholy ballad”.
Last year, Yorke released his soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria remake, which arrived alongside a short Netflix film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
