Thom Yorke has been exceptionally cool lately, even by his usually high I’m-the-singer-in-Radiohead cool standards. Last week there was a surprise DJ set at Low End Theory at the behest of Flying Lotus. Then just yesterday we got to hear his fantastic collaboration with Burial and Four Tet. And now comes this news that Yorke has been in the studio with masked-rapper DOOM, working on “duet songs and shit.” according to the MC.
It’s not their first meeting. Yorke surprised everyone when he remixed DOOM’s “Gazillion Ear” in 2009. So when will we hear this meeting of musical minds? “[It's] just like preliminary shit,” DOOM told 3D World Magazine. “But we’ll probably end up doing a whole record together.”
