Album: New Moon Soundtrack (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This solo number by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is from the soundtrack for the 2009 romantic fantasy, New Moon. Like all the other songs this is original and exclusive to the soundtrack and was chosen by music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas. A relationship had already been established between Yorke and Patsavas, as the Radiohead track "15 Step" was licensed the previous year for the end credits of Twilight. Patsavas recalled to Billboard magazine: "Early on in the summer I was speaking quite a bit to [Bryce Edge, Yorke's manager] and he said Thom had something already recorded that would be appropriate for the [New Moon] movie. I was thrilled."
