Thom Yorke – All For The Best

September 18, 2009

ciao-my-shining-star-cover-artThis I deemed to be blog worthy despite it being slightly out of date in the fast-paced-attention-span-of-a-leaf-in-a-windtunnel-instant-tweetly-interweb-world, as it is such an outstanding track.

Recorded by Thom Yorke, featuring vocals from his brother Andy, the track is to appear on album Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, of Miracle Legion fame. The album features contributions from a mighty impressive range of artists, including The National and Frank Turner, see the tracklist below for full details.

The story behind the album is quite a moving tale. A year ago the wife of Mark Mulcahy, Melissa, died suddenly leaving Mark to raise his three year old twins daughters by himself. 21 artists have contributed to the compilation, enabling him to continue making music during a tough period in his life.
