Thom Yorke shares slow-burning 2021 remix of ‘Creep’

The eerie remix of the 1992 Radiohead classic has been officially released. The tune was originally made for designer Jun Takahashi’s Tokyo Fashion Week showcase, ‘Creep Very’, in March.

Earlier this year, Thom Yorke made an atmospheric, if not creepy, take of one of Radiohead’s most iconic songs as part of the soundtrack for designer Jun Takahashi’s 2021 UNDERCOVER Fall/Winter women’s collection fashion showcase.

On Tuesday, July 13, the Radiohead frontman has officially shared the remix titled ‘Creep (Very 2021 Rmx)’ with original album artwork by Takahashi.

“Here is my re-imagined remix version of Creep for 2021, 30 years later,” writes Yorke in an announcement posted to Instagram. “Done for my friend Jun Takahashi, and for a world that is seemingly turning upside down.”

The reworked acoustic version is a lot slower and gloomier, running for nine minutes long.

The remix isn’t his first fashion show soundtrack. He’s previously premiered the original track ‘Coloured Candy’ for label rag & bone’s SS17 presentation.

More recently, Yorke formed a new band, The Smile, alongside Radiohead lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner. The band are also collaborating with longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

They made their debut with a surprise performance at the 2021 Glastonbury Festival streaming event in May.
