"Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses" and "The Hollow Earth" are songs by Thom Yorke of the English alternative rock band Radiohead and produced by longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. They were released as a double A-side 12-inch single on 21 September 2009, and as a download on 6 October 2009.[1] The vinyl was limited to 8000 copies worldwide.[2]

Radiohead performed an early version of "Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses" with the working title "Reckoner" in 2001. Working on the song for their 2007 album In Rainbows, the band added a coda that eventually became a new song with the same name released on that album.[3] In 2009, Yorke and Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood "radically reworked" the original song and retitled it "Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses", released as a solo Yorke single.[1]

Yorke described "The Hollow Earth" as a "bass menace" that came from the recording sessions for his first solo album, The Eraser (2006).[1]
