Radiohead on the move? Silence!
Fans of Radiohead may have noticed a change in the band's Dead Air website design this week, as well as a new track from Thom Yorke.
And by new track, we mean "2 Minutes of Silence" -- a video and track of literally two minutes of silence -- that Yorke jumped in to help "make" with Mark Ronson, Bryan Ferry, British Prime Minister David Cameron, tennis star Andy Murray, actor David Tenant and others. The single will go on sale for £2 on Nov. 8.
The promotion is part of supporting the Royal British Legion, with proceeds to "support serving & ex-serving troops and their families."
"Rather than record a song, we felt the UK public would recognize the poignancy of silence and its clear association with remembrance," said Chris Simpkins, the Director General of the Royal British League.
The aim is to have the song take the top of the British chart for the week of Nov.14
Still, with the changes to the site and with the increased activity over October therein, is Radiohead primed (yet) to release new material?
