Speaking to Rolling Stone about the song, Edward Norton recently 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.

Yorke recently brought ‘ANIMA’ songs to the TV, playing a handful of tracks from the album to Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The ‘ANIMA’ tour will come to the UK and Europe next year, featuring two London shows at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith.
