For Some Reason, Thom Yorke Has Written a Song That Lasts 18 Days [NOT a Typo]

Okay, Radiohead. As we’ve been patiently waiting for a new album, your frontman has been spouting off with more musical ideas than he knows what to do with. The man is bubbling over with ideas. How else can you explain this new musical score that runs for 432 hours–about 18 days?

The project is for a Stanley Donwood art exhibit entitled The Panic Office in Australia (Stanley is the longtime creator of Radiohead album artwork). Thom’s score will run the entire length of the exhibit without repeating a single time.

Called Subterranea, the piece is said to be very much like Thom’s solo work with the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes album.

The exhibit is currently running in Sydney and wraps up June 6. I, for one, can’t wait for the extended dance remix.
