More Thom Yorke More Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke has today shared a new solo track 5.17, with the track unexpectedly hitting streaming services over the weekend. 

Apple Music has also listed a second single titled That's How Horses Are is set for release on the 2nd of April. 

The atmospheric piano ballad landed alongside the third episode of Peaky Blinders' sixth season, which Yorke and fellow bandmate Jonny Greenwood are contributing music towards.

In an interview with NME, Peaky Blinders director Anthony Barne described the importance of the musical curation on the show, "Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood contributed some original stuff, I’m over the moon about all of that.

"The music has always been really important historically, and I was really keen to bring a dramatic score into it.

"We’re using that much more in this season. It’s a much heavier season so the score is taking things in a very different direction.”
