/ 10:28 PM October 17, 2018

Thom Yorke has shared a new track called “Hands Off The Antarctic”, promoting a campaign to protect the Antarctic helmed by the Greenpeace organization.


The Radiohead frontman accompanies this instrumental track with black and white footage of landscapes filmed from the Greenpeace ship, Arctic Sunrise.

“There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity’s footprint,” Yorke said in a statement. “This track is about stopping the relentless march of those heavy footsteps. The Antarctic is a true wilderness and what happens there affects us all. That’s why we should protect it.”


Yorke recently released his soundtrack album for Luca Guadagnino’s movie, “Suspiria”. JB
