It’s a family affair for Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, whose new video for the single “All For The Best”, a Miracle Legion cover, is now available. Yorke and his brother Andy came together for the first time publicly to record the single, which is featured on the September 29th release of Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy. Andy Yorke not only performed on Thom’s song, but also contributed a track of his own.
The album, Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, is a tribute to Mark Mulcahy and his late wife Melissa. Mulcahy is a former member of both Miracle Legion and Polaris, whose wife died suddenly in September 2008. The proceeds from the sale of the album will go directly to Mulcahy, for the raising of his young daughters and continuing his music career. The album features 21 exclusive recordings by his friends, including Thom Yorke, Michael Stipe, Dinosaur Jr., The National, Frank Black, and Juliana Hatfield among others, and another 20 tracks will be available digitally.
