Radiohead were long rumored to be the frontrunners to record the theme for the new James Bond movie Spectre, but that didn’t end up happening, and instead we got Sam Smith’s not-terribly-exciting “Writing’s On The Wall.” But it turns out that Radiohead actually did write a song for the film, “Spectre,” and they’ve decided to share it with us today as a special Christmas gift. This is what Thom Yorke wrote about the track on Facebook and Twitter, where he initially shared the link:
Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre.
Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much.
As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it.
Merry Christmas. May the force be with you.
First LCD Soundsystem and now this. Merry Christmas y’all!
