Thom Yorke and co gave their fans a special treat this Christmas. It appears that Radiohead were due to record the theme song to the new James Bond movie Spectre… but that it didn’t happen.
Writing on Twitter, Yorke said: “Last year we were asked to write a tune for Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were.
“It didn't work out ... but became something of our own which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you.”
In the end, the producers went with a song called Writing’s On The Wall by pop star Sam Smith. Were they right? Have a listen and see what you think.
