Thom Yorke Goes Silent

Two Minute Silence

With a nod to John Cage, Thom Yorke has teamed up with the resurgent Bryan Ferry, Mark Ronson, Bob Hoskins, tennis player Andy Murray, and British Prime Minister David Cameron for a charity single called “2 Minute Silence” that will indeed feature two-minutes of silence instead of the usual charity single’s saccharine sentiments and blandly catchy chorus. It goes on sale 11/7, aka Britain’s Remembrance Day. Royal British Legion Director General Chris Simpkins explains: “Rather than record a song, we felt the UK public would recognize the poignancy of silence and its clear association with remembrance.” Here’s the 11-second teaser.
