Radiohead’s Rejected ‘Spectre’ Bond Theme Tune Rocks

If you’re a Radiohead fan, brace yourself for the greatest Christmas present ever.

The band released the ”Spectre” theme song on SoundCloud Friday morning. Lead singer Thom Yorke announced on Twitter that Radiohead did “write a tune” for the latest film in the James Bond series, but it didn’t end up working out.

It is Radiohead’s first new song since “Spooks,” recorded before ”In Rainbows, which appeared on the Inherent Vice soundtrack in 2014, according to Rolling Stone.

Sam Smith was ultimately chosen to record the movie’s theme song, “Writing on the Wall,” but you can still enjoy Radiohead’s take on the Bond theme that almost was. Best enjoyed alongside a martini – shaken, not stirred). 

May the force be with you too, Radiohead.
