Radiohead’s Thom Yorke releases Barack Obama celebration song
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has made a new remix of his solo song ‘Harrowdown Hill’ available as a free download, in celebration of Barack Obama’s win in the US presidential election.
The song, the original of which appeared on Yorke’s 2006 solo album ‘The Eraser’, is available to download now from Radiohead.com.
Yorke wrote on the website: “In celebration of November 5, Jonny’s [Greenwood, guitarist] birthday amid bonfire and fireworks in the UK and the dawn of a new era in politics in the USA, I humbly donate a remix of ‘Harrowdown Hill’ that was finished ages ago during the band webcasts, a small reminder of the dark days of Bush’s.”
Radiohead completed their world tour last month after playing a series of dates in Japan.
