Little Thom Yorke has been a busy bee of late, what with him and his mates playing Reading and the announcement that he’ll release two brand new solo singles tomorrow, one called ‘FeelingPulledApartByHorses’ and the other ‘The Hollow Earth’. Exciting. He’s also contributed a track to the new Twilight film (details of which are due to be announced very soon) and there’s also this track, ‘All For The Best’. This cover is part of a benefit CD for Mark Mulcahy, the frontman with cult American band Miracle Legion. The CD will help raise funds to enable Mulcahy to continue recording and look after his three-year-old twin daughters, following the sudden death of his wife.
Yorke’s haunting interpretation of the Miracle Legion track also features brother Andy on backing vocals.
The video harks back to those days where videos could mean bugger all to anyone but somehow be deeply unsettling. What’s with all the skulls!?
Other acts to appear on Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy include Michael Stipe, The National, Frank Black and Mercury Rev.
