While Radiohead works on its latest studio album, Thom Yorke has continued to release new music on his own. 

For New York Fashion Week, Yorke composed a new song titled “Villain” to soundtrack the fashion line Rag & Bone’s 2016 collection. It’s a haunting, eight-minute track that features an ominous chorus of ooohs over a spare march of piano keys. Check it out below:
