Radiohead – “Ill Wind”
Radiohead just started shipping a special vinyl edition of their recent album A Moon Shaped Pool. As Reddit points out, the package comes with a CD containing two non-album tracks, Bond reject “Spectre” and a never-before-heard b-side called “Ill Wind.” It begins with an almost bossanova-esque groove that eventually transitions into an icy synth exercise, with Yorke’s inimitable falsetto presiding over the whole thing. It’s really good.
UPDATE 1/11/2019: After being wiped from the internet in 2016, “Ill Wind” has appeared by surprise for purchase and streaming today, announced by a tweet from the band. Listen below.
“Ill Wind” is out now on XL. Purchase it here.
