I’m sorry, I think my head just exploded. NME reports that Thom Yorke (that’s Radiohead’s frontman to you, if you live under a rock) was kind enough to lend backing vocals to Bjork’s forthcoming single, “Nattura,” due out in the U.S. on October 20th. The song is named for an Icleandic environmental protection organization that Bjork has supported in the past, and it’s not the first collaboration between Yorke and Bjork (who I shall henceforth refer to as B’yorke). The pair dueted on “I’ve Seen it All,” from 2000’s Selmasongs, the soundtrack to the brilliant but supremely depressing musical, “Dancer in the Dark.”
As a fan of both artists, I’m eager to hear what these crazy kids concoct. Now, back to sewing my swan dress Halloween costume.
P.S. — Here it is!
