New Thom Yorke, "All For the Best"

Lots of tributes and compilations coming out this year-- or at least that's what it seems like. The latest across the newswire? Ciao My Shining Star, is a tribute to the music of former Miracle Legion frontman Mark Mulcahy. Though Mulcahy is still alive, his wife, tragically, is not, and therefore, the album is serving partially as a benefit as well. A lot of big-time are in on it, most notably Dinosaur Jr., The National and Ben Kweller, but today, we're here for the biggest name of them all, Thom Yorke. The Radiohead bossman covers "All For the Best" in the opener, and sets a great mood with his electronic version reminiscent of Hail to the Thief. For those interested in hearing it, for the sake of Yorke or Mulcahy, you can head over to Stereogum. Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy is out September 29th via Shout! Factory.
