Thom Yorke Reveals New Track Daily Battles Featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea

Wednesday, 21 August 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Thom Yorke has released a new track.

Daily Battles is the main theme from Motherless Brooklyn, the upcoming scereenplay based on a 1950s version of Jonathan Lethem's 1999 novel of the same name.

The serene, piano-led track features vulnerable, double-tracked vocals by the Radiohead frontman and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea on bass and trumpets. Director Edward Norton said to Rolling Stone:

“Thom is so good at weaving together personal anguish and the crushing politics of the time. The way that you get the sense in his songs of the difficulty of holding on to your own spirit within times that feel oppressive, and that is so much the straddle that is taking place in this film, which is loneliness and institutional depression and racism.”

The single will get a physical release on October 4 as a split 7” along with a jazz arrangement by Wynton Marsalis. The full soundtrack for Motherless Brooklyn, meanwhile, will follow on October 25, ahead of the film’s UK release on November 29. 

Yorke recently released a remix EP of his latest solo album, ‘Anima’, and last year collaborated with Luca Guadagnino on the soundtrack to the supernatural horror film Suspiria. This fall he'll tour North America. Tickets are on sale now.
