Radiohead LEAK

As some of you may or may not know, Radiohead is doing some new tunes for the Twilight soundtrack. I hate the movies, I hate the books even more, but I’ll certainly take any excuse for more Radiohead!

Now, this tune may or may not be in the soundtrack. That hasn’t been confirmed. The only thing we DO know is that this is a fairly high quality new Radiohead. Thom Yorke’s voice is just as haunting as ever, and for one of the first times, the band employs a dropped C tuning! Not that it’s heavy at all; it’s not. In fact, the tune, “These Are My Twisted Words,” is an ambient sojourn. The band flows fluidly from melodic minor to phrygian modes, creating a dark, middle eastern texture that’s complimented by Thom’s smooth, reverb-y vocals. Like taking a drag from a hookah in the corner of a dark room, we inhale, hold in, and release the silky smoke.

Here’s a stream from youtube:

and here’s the actual song:
