The Radiohead frontman has remixed the band's hit single and it's very apt for these times. Listen to the new version here.

Thom Yorke created a version of Creep earlier this year and now it's being released as a standalone single.

The hit Radiohead single, which featured on the band's 1993 Pablo Honey album, was reworked for Jun Takahashi’s Tokyo Fashion Week UNDERCOVER Fall/Winter 2021 Women’s collection entitled Creep Very.

If you think the number one single couldn't get much moodier, Thom Yorke gives the original a run for its money and stretches it out from approximately four minutes to just over nine!
