Thom Yorke Two Minute Silence

As we mentioned last month, Thom Yorke has teamed up with Bryan Ferry, Mark Ronson, Bob Hoskins, tennis player Andy Murray, and British Prime Minister David Cameron for a silent charity single called “2 Minute Silence.” I made a John Cage reference. People debated the concept. It’s almost time for you to download those two minutes of absence. The track was originally coming out 11/7, aka Britain’s Remembrance Day, but the official release date’s now 11/8. Regardless, on that official release date you’ll receive a link to an MP3 and an official video. Remember, “funds will support serving & ex-serving troops and their families.” Pre-order at silentsingle. Via deadairspace:

  1. they let ANDY MURRAY on this fucking thing? haha…where’s beckham n eddie izzard too?

  2. Your headline is bad and you should feel bad.

  3. any idea what the bitrate is gonna be? I can’t handle my silence in anything less than 320 kbs/sec

  4. I think I saw a FLAC version floating around the P2P sites

  5. Can’t wait to hear this in 24bit!

  6. Judging from some of these comments, people are still missing the point of this experiment.

    Isn’t the track supposed to be a moment of silence?
