New Radiohead, "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)"

This was a bit unexpected, but I'm still very glad to see it. Radiohead's got a new song, which will probably not be on any upcoming album. As has been common practice for the band in the past, the track, "Harry Patch (In Memory Of" is for a charity/cause (in this case, the Royal British Legion). The song was inspired by the death of the Harry Patch, the last surviving World War I combat soldier, with the words pulled from an interview the man gave in 2005. It's a cool, ambient track. Sort of reminds me of "Four Minutes," the band's most recent reaction to death/tragedy. The beginning also made me think of Coldplay, which was a bit unsettling, but luckily, that goes away. If you're interested in just streaming the song, head over to BBC. If you'd like to purchase, Radiohead's website is the place to be. It'll cost you about $1.70, but everything's going to the aforementioned cause.
