Collaborations[edit]

Drugstore
Yorke shared vocals with Isabel Monteiro from the English band Drugstore on the single, "El President", off their album White Magic for Lovers. Yorke also appeared in the music video. Monteiro was born in Brazil, and the song was inspired by the events of the Chilean 1973 military coup by Augusto Pinochet against President Salvador Allende.
Sparklehorse
Yorke sings part of this cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" with Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous. Yorke sang his part on the telephone from his hotel room. Sparklehorse were Radiohead's opening act on the European leg of the OK Computer tour in 1997.
Unkle
Yorke and DJ Shadow got together during the OK Computer tour in San Francisco and recorded "Rabbit in Your Headlights" for the James Lavelle project going under the name Unkle. The song is the penultimate track on Unkle's first album Psyence Fiction (1998), which also features contributions by many other artists.
The Venus in Furs
Yorke and Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood got together with Bernard Butler, David Gray, Andy Mackay, and Paul Kimble to form the band, The Venus in Furs (named after the Velvet Underground song). They recorded five songs for the Todd Haynes film Velvet Goldmine (1998), which was produced by Yorke's friend Michael Stipe. Three of the tracks sung by Yorke are Roxy Music covers, originally sung by Bryan Ferry, whilst "Baby's on Fire" is a Brian Eno cover and "Tumbling Down" is a Cockney Rebel cover. The tracks are:
  • "2HB"
  • "Ladytron"
  • "Baby's on Fire" (Vocal: Jonathan Rhys Meyers)
  • "Bitter-Sweet"
  • "Tumbling Down" (Vocal: Jonathan Rhys Meyers)
Björk
Yorke and Björk sang a duet called "I've Seen It All" on Selmasongs (2000), the soundtrack album to Lars Von Trier's award winning film Dancer in the Dark. In the movie, a different recording is heard, with the song sung by actor Peter Stormare. The song was nominated for an Academy Award, and the two were to have performed it together at the 2001 Oscars, but it was cut to a Björk solo performance due to time requirements. Yorke also provided backing vocals on "Náttúra", a single released by Björk on October 20, 2008 to promote the Icelandic environmental organization of the same name.[32]
PJ Harvey
Yorke had a strong presence on PJ Harvey's 2000 release, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. He did a duet with Harvey on the song "This Mess We're In" and sang back-up on two other songs: "One Line" and "Beautiful Feeling". Harvey's album won the Mercury Music Prize in 2001 (over Radiohead's Amnesiac, among other nominees).
Band Aid 20
In December 2004, Yorke and Greenwood contributed to the Band Aid 20 "Do They Know It's Christmas?" charity single. While he does not sing, Yorke can be seen playing piano in the music video.
Modeselektor
Thom Yorke contributed vocals to the song "The White Flash" by Modeselektor in 2007, and again in 2011 for the songs "Shipwreck", "This", and "Dull Hull" (b-side) from their newest "Monkeytown" album.
Flying Lotus
In 2010 Yorke contributed vocals to the song ...And The World Laughs With You on the album Cosmogramma by Flying Lotus in addition to vocals on the song "Electric Candyman" on his 2012 album Until the Quiet Comes.
MF DOOM
In November 2011, Thom Yorke contributed beats to the song "Retarded Fren" by MF DOOM. This track also included musical contributions by Jonny Greenwood.
Live collaborations
In 1998, Yorke performed with R.E.M. at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington, D.C., singing "Be Mine" with the group and singing Patti Smith's part of "E-Bow the Letter", a duet with lead singer Michael Stipe (Stipe also joined Radiohead for a song, singing Yorke's part on "Lucky"). In spring 2002, Yorke and Beck made a surprise appearance at a Los Angeles benefit concert for fairer record label contracts, duetting on an acoustic cover of the Velvet Underground song "I'm Set Free". In 2006, Yorke performed several songs from The Eraser live on TV and radio programmes with producer Nigel Godrich and members of Radiohead.
Remixes
Yorke produced remixes of "Gazzillion Ear" by MF DOOM from Born Like This, "Proud Evolution" by Liars from Sisterworld, and "Jump Up" by Major Lazer from the Lazers Never Die EP.
