Thom Yorke is a fan of Rag & Bone — that’s the designers’ beige suede Manston Jacket he’s wearing in Radiohead’s “Daydreaming” video — and has showed his appreciation by soundtracking their runway shows for the past several years. He gave them “Villain” at NYFW 2015 and for this week’s S/S 2017 collection unveiling he wrote another new track, “Coloured Candy.” It’s a pulsating 10-minute electronic soundscape with a synthesized “Fitter Happier”-style voice reciting lyrics originally from The King Of Limbs companion newspaper The Universal Sigh, as Pitchfork points out. Wallpaper reports that “Coloured Candy” served as the “title track” to the show. Listen below.
