I’d imagine that most of you would likely have seen the new James Bond film Spectre by now, and that you would have also noticed that UK crooner Sam Smith is the man responsible for its opening theme song, but did you know that Radiohead were also asked to work on a song for the movie?

Their recording didn’t make the cut, but Radiohead loved it so much themselves, they decided to upload the track for us all to enjoy – it’s also available to download for free

“Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you” – Thom Yorke
