Alternative rock band Supergrass and singer Joanna Newsom collabotarted on the track.
The ‘Spooks’ song dates back to 2006, a Danish fan captured the upbeat instrumental version on video during a gig in Copenhagen.
Initially it was thought that Radiohead had re-recorded an old live track for Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film ‘Inherent Vice.’
Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood confirmed that Supergrass recorded it, clarifying the confusion of a tweet from Pitchfork labeling the music as a new Radiohead song.
Joanna Newsom whispers over the instrumental song in a spoken word style delivery, while former Supergrass members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey play the haunting tune.
