Between Thom Yorke’s surprise solo album Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes and working on the new Radiohead album, the singer managed to sneak in some minimalist soundscapes to help score the documentary UK Gold, which details Big Business’ history of tax avoidance in England. The 12-song score also features six tracks by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja.
Thom Yorke contributes four solo instrumentals to the score, while the singer and Greenwood team for a pair of songs, “Tap24 + Hiha24” and “Pin Loon Break Up,” the latter featuring an infectious loop of Yorke’s trademark voice. Yorke’s “Mono Jam One V2” is also an extended version of the caustic opening of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ “A Brain in a Bottle,” which provides a timeframe on when he crafted these tracks.
“Now is the time to reveal the revolving doors between government and the City that has bred lies and corruption for so long, siphoning money through our tax havens for the global super rich, while now preaching that we the people must pay our taxes and suffer austerity,” Yorke said in support of the documentary. “Just who does our government work for.”
