Radiohead never released a studio version of “Spooks”, instead just playing it live since 2006. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood changed up the arrangement, making it more understated for Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming film Inherent Vice. He enlisted the help of Gaz Coombes and Dany Goffey to create, technically, the first Radiohead song in three years.
Nonesuch will release the complete soundtrack on December 15, and Inherent Vice will be in theatres on December 12.
Listen to the reworked “Spooks” below.
