Thom Yorke has a longstanding relationship with the clothing label Rag & Bone. He’s soundtracked fashion shows for them a couple of times, most recently at New York Fashion Week in 2013. And now he’s done it again. Yorke has contributed a new eight-minute song called “Villain” to this year’s Rag & Bone New York Fashion Week show. Yorke recorded it with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, as Thom Yorke Rules reports. It’s a wordless piece that moves from ethereal ambience toward futuristic, minimal dance music. Listen to it below.
The Brooklyn Youth Chorus performed the song live at the fashion show, though they were hidden by a curtain. You can watch footage of the song playing at the show at Fashionista.
