Thom Yorke premieres an eerie 8-minute song at New York Fashion Week with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus

Thom Yorke is messing with our heads again. The Radiohead frontman debuted a haunting new song, "Villain", at the recent runway show for Rag & Bone at New York Fashion Week. Closing in at just over eight minutes, the new song is an eery piano ballad underneath a stirring harmony from the Brooklyn Youth Chorus who quieten their moans only for light distortion to creep in and make way for skittery electronica, continuing to take shape until a hypnotic final minute that is in line with what we've come to expect from Yorke's highly experimental solo works. Listen to the piece below.
