Lead singer Thom Yorke recently stated in an interview that Radiohead would not be releasing a new album anytime in the near future. While this unfortunate fact has not changed, it has not prevented another new song, “These Are My Twisted Words”, from being leaked to the public last week.


This five-and-a-half-minute track opens with three minutes of ominous instrumental krautrock and is the most recent in a long line of unconventionally beautiful songs for which Radiohead is renowned for. You can decide for yourself, however, as it is currently available via free download on the band’s website.
