Even though Radiohead isn’t touring or releasing new music, Thom Yorke has had a busy 2018 and the fall has brought his hard work to light. The Radiohead frontman is making his film composition debut by scoring the reboot of the 1977 Italian horror classic “Suspiria,” directed by Luca Guadagnino. Yorke also found the time to record a song for Greenpeace’s campaign to protect the Antarctic titled “Hands Off the Antarctic.”
“There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity’s footprint,” Yorke said in a statement published by the Independent. “This track is about stopping the relentless march of those heavy footsteps. The Antarctic is a true wilderness and what happens there affects us all. That’s why we should protect it.” You can listen to “Hands Off the Antarctic” in the video above.
So far Yorke has released four tracks from the “Suspiria” soundtrack--”Suspirium,” “Has Ended” and “Volk”--with the fourth track, “Open Again,” arriving Wednesday (Oct. 17). You can listen to “Open Again” in the video below. The “Suspiria” soundtrack is set to come out as a double LP at the end of October, “Suspiria” hits U.S. theaters on Nov. 2.
