Thom Yorke’s recently announced new album ANIMA is out now. Along with it came the new Netflix short film of the same name from long-time Radiohead collaborator and Phantom Thread director Paul Thomas Anderson.
To paraphrase Spaceballs, the new album has all the bleeps, creeps and sweeps you might need. It picks up where Yorke’s last solo album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, left off, highlighting similar thematic beats that permeate Yorke’s work. Fans of Yorke’s oddball dancing will be relieved to hear that ANIMA (the “one-reeler”) finds the singer moving and grooving with his girlfriend, Italian actress Dajana Roncione.
ANIMA is out now via XL Recordings. You can stream/buy it here, listen to “Not The News” below (plus a 1995 Radiohead performance from the Paste archives) and find the short film over on Netflix.
