Artwork designed by designer Jun Takahashi
Earlier this year Thom Yorke created a version of Radiohead’s “Creep” for Japanese designer Jun Takahashi’s Tokyo Fashion Week showcase of “Creep Very,” his UNDERCOVER Fall/Winter 2021 Women’s collection.
This nine minute haunting reimagining of the 1993 hit is now being released as “Creep (Very 2021 RMX),” a standalone single available for streaming and digital download. The digital single features bespoke artwork by Jun Takahashi.
Radiohead debuted with “Creep” in 1992. The song about a drunk man who lacks the self-confidence to face the woman he likes, was popular in Israel and America initially, but didn’t become a worldwide hit until it was re-released in 1993. It charted as high as No. 2 on the US Billboard Alternative Airplay chart and appears on the band’s 1993 debut album, Pablo Honey.
In May, Yorke debuted The Smile with Radiohead member Jonny Greenwood, Tom Skinner and producer Nigel Godrich during a Glastonbury livestream.
Yorke also stays busy with his band, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, featuring Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri performing songs from Yorke’s solo and Atoms For Peace catalogues, including his recent GRAMMY-nominated ANIMA album and Suspiria soundtrack. The group were forced to postpone last year’s US tour dates due to the pandemic.
