Thom Yorke and Radiohead have released a new remix of “Creep”

“Creep” wasn’t a hit at first, but when it finally caught on in 1993, it was Radiohead’s breakthrough single. Although the band apparently grew to hate the song, it remains one of their most popular songs. And now they’ve given it a new spin.

The new remix–called “Creep (Very 2021 Rmx)”–first appeared in a fashion show for Japanese designer Jun Takahashi. It’s now available for streaming in its original nine-minute form. And it’s certainly very different from the original.

    Craziness…
    Their loathing of their own song has always been legendary – to the point where they wouldn’t play it live.
    But this is objectively terrible… like they are trying to murder/sabotage the song.

    It’s such a shame and so sad when artists detest one of their creations that people love so much. It drove the “Cherry Pie” singer to suicide 🙁

      It’s just a slowed down version of the acoustic recording that is on the My Iron Lung EP, with some synths added.
