Last year, he even lent his voice to one of the many soundscapes on Flying Lotus' highly acclaimed 'Cosmogramma.' On the heels of Radiohead's terse, drum-heavy new album 'The King of Limbs,' it should come as no surprise that he's recorded a single with folktronica pioneer Four Tet and shadowy dubstep luminary Burial, two of the most lauded electronic artists in the world currently.
Burial and Four Tet have previously collaborated on the 2009 single 'Moth/Wolf' Cub,' which managed the remarkable feat of sounding exactly like both artists.
The 12" double A-side single with Yorke will be released via Four Tet's own record label Text, and will contain two tracks, A-side 'Ego' and the AA-side 'Mirror.'
A press release did not make clear whether all three of the relatively mysterious artists will be performing on both tracks together or separately. Both songs are scheduled to premiere tonight at 11:00PM GMT on the UK radio station Rinse FM, during a session between Four Tet and UK producer Floating Points.
