Radiohead has recently shared their rejected James Bond theme song to the public.
The English band was asked to record a song for “Spectre,” the latest installment in the James Bond Series. Frontman Thom Yorke, however, revealed that the song did not work out.
The song that was chosen for the movie was Sam Smith’s “Writing on the Wall,” which got mixed reviews.
The song, which was released for fans on Christmas day, is now on SoundCloud, which means that listeners are free to stream and download.
“Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you,” Yorke said on Twitter.
“Spectre” continues to play in some theaters this Christmas weekend.
Meanwhile, Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood revealed in October that the band is hoping to tour their new album in 2016.
“Lots has been recorded,” he tweeted, adding that the band is “about to go through it all to see if it’s any good.”
“We HOPE to tour next year,” he added.
