Earlier this year, Thom Yorke debuted a new remix of Radiohead’s iconic Pablo Honey song “Creep”, as part of the soundtrack to Jun Takahashi’s Undercover presentation for AW21. Now, the musician has officially shared the full song, alongside original artwork by Takahashi.
Titled “Creep (Very 2021 Rmx)”, the reworked acoustic version of the 1992 track appropriately amps up the doom and gloom of the original, slowing it down and stretching it out to almost nine minutes long.
“Here is my re-imagined remix version of Creep for 2021, 30 years later,” writes Yorke in an announcement posted to Instagram. “Done for my friend Jun Takahashi, and for a world that is seemingly turning upside down.”
The remix isn’t his first fashion show soundtrack, however. He’s previously worked closely with rag & bone as well, premiering the original song “Coloured Candy” at the label’s SS17 presentation. He also debuted new material as part of the label’s visuals Why Can’t We Get Along and A Last Supper, from 2018 and 2019, respectively.
More recently, Yorke has shared an unearthed solo piano set in connection with longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich’s From the Basement series. That release follows a series of archival concert films from the band itself, which have steadily seen the light of day over lockdown.
