Thom Yorke joins forces with Flea for “Daily Battles”

Off the soundtrack from the upcoming Edward Norton movie, ‘Motherless Brooklyn.’

Thom Yorke and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers have released “Daily Battles,” a track from the new Edward Norton movie, Motherless Brooklyn.

A delicate ballad, “Daily Battles” is embellished with saloon-style pianos and the Radiohead leader’s signature falsetto: “Lock your dreams away / You’re  waking up / Enough about / Your broken heart.” Flea, who’s worked with Yorke in the supergroup Atoms for Peace, comes on to provide bass and trumpets that recede and intensify. Released alongside the track was a stellar jazz instrumental version of the track arranged by Wynton Marsalis.

Yorke’s last solo album ANIMA dropped in June, which was accompanied by a 15-minute short film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Last year, Yorke provided the acclaimed score for the Suspiria remake.
