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.

Capable of generation-defining stadium bangers alongside heavily experimental sound happenings, the Oxford natives managed to maintain a stunning degree of creative integrity at a time when their contemporaries were falling over each other to sell out. ‘Anima’ is Thom Yorke’s third solo album, and it’s easily his most accomplished to date. Arguably, it’s his best work since Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’.

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.

Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.

Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
