    Christmas is behind us now, but Radiohead remain in a giving spirit. Today, they’ve finally released their rare track “Ill Wind” to digital streaming services for the first time.

    “Ill Wind” originally appeared on a CD single with their rejected James Bond song “Spectre”, which was packaged as part of the vinyl edition of 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool. Produced by Nigel Godrich, it’s a moody number led by the billowing vocals of frontman Thom Yorke.

    “Keep your distance, then no harm will come,” Yorke advises rather eerily. “No ill wind will blow, will blow.”

    Radiohead will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March, though Yorke won’t be in attendance due to prior commitments.

    In related news, Yorke recently announced an expanded edition of his Suspiria soundtrack featuring previously unheard material. He’s also due to release a new solo album this year.
