Radiohead drop surprise track ‘Spectre’ for Xmas

Are Radiohead a rock band? They’re certainly influential – loads of your favourite acts list them as a huge influence. After all, who else could get away with breaking the internet on Xmas day with a new track.

Taking to Twitter, front man Thom Yorke revealed the band had, earlier in the year, been asked to write a new song for Bond film Spectre. It didn’t work out, but the band loved the song, so have dropped it on SoundCloud for everyone to hear.

And you can do that, right now, below. Sam Smith is probably having a very bad day indeed.

May the force be with you too, Radiohead.

We’re expecting a new Radiohead album ‘at some point’ next year. Maybe by then we’ll have worked out where they fit on the rock spectrum. But it’s Xmas – everyone is welcome at Xmas. Enjoy!
