"Black Swan" is a song by Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke and is the fourth track on his 2006 album The Eraser. The song was released to American radio in July 2006 (see 2006 in music). In early August 2006, the song placed at #40 in Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.[1]

"Black Swan" dates back to the Kid A sessions. The song "has this tiny, shredded segment of something that was one of the library samples we had. It was Ed and Phil doing this thing, and I sliced it into bits. The sample was 2000, but the song was 2005."[2] The 2006 Richard Linklater film A Scanner Darkly features the song over the closing credits.
