Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has announced that he’s releasing a new record called ANIMA alongside an accompanying animated short to be released on Netflix.
To announce the release, Yorke tweeted out a video that defines a One-Reeler, which the video states is “a motion picture, especially a cartoon or comedy, of 10-12 minutes duration and contained on one reel of film; popular especially in the era of silent films.” The clip, which reveals that the animation will be directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, comes soundtracked to a preview of Yorke’s new music.
