Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has been releasing some new music as of late and today there was a debut of a new track via a Greenpeace protest! Broadcast at London’s Marble Arch and matched with projections showing wildlife in Antarctica, the track, aptly titled “Hands Off the Antarctic”, was just streamed live via Facebook and is embedded below.
Thom Yorke – “Hands Off the Antarctic”
The video posted via Greenpeace was simply accompanied with the following post text:
BREAKING: Greenpeace is premiering a new song by Thom Yorke from Radiohead here at London’s Marble Arch!
He’s written this new song to support the campaign to protect the Antarctic.
Over 2 million people around the world want an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. Stand with Thom Yorke and all those around the globe and tell world leaders to #ProtectAntarctic: protecttheantarctic.org
This was for a cause near and dear to Thom Yorke’s heart.
“There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity’s footprint,” Yorke said to NME. “This track is about stopping the relentless march of those heavy footsteps.”
