Thom Yorke has remixed the solo acoustic version of ‘Creep’ to contribute to a high-profile Japanese fashion show.
The 1992 Radiohead classic was reworked for Kiryū-born designer Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER 2020-2021 autumn/winter collection ‘Creep Very’, which was showcased this week.
Yorke has provided a variety of songs for fashion show soundtracks over the years. ‘Coloured Candy’ soundtracked the launch of Rag & Bone’s 2017 spring/summer collection, and the singer previously contributed to the New York fashion chain in 2011, 2013, and 2015 (with ‘Villains’ for the latter).

It’s not the first high-profile reimagining of ‘Creep’ this week, after mxmtoon released a cover of the song as part of the upcoming third Life Is Strange game.

Yorke retweeted a video of Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy, who gave a speech on why the party voted against the new crime bill. The musician captioned the post with the quote: “…those who cause annoyance could be jailed for up to ten years…”
