Thom Yorke’s handwritten Radiohead lyrics to be auctioned for Oxfam

Thom Yorke’s handwritten lyrics for ‘Airbag’ – a song that appears on Radiohead’s 1997 album ‘OK Computer’ – will be auctioned for charity.

The frontman penned the lyrics on the inside cover of a copy of William Blake’s Songs Of Innocence And Experience, which he has also annotated.

The book has been donated to Yorke’s local Oxfam shop in Oxford, and is being auctioned by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions on 18th March.

A spokeswoman for Dreweatts says:

“Throughout the book, Yorke underlines words and annotated the margins, especially to Nurse’s Song, A Cradle Song and The Divine Image, with corrections and revisions.

“The book with lyrics is being sold on behalf of Oxfam and is estimated at £800 to £1200.”
