One of music’s biggest names is an admirer of DOOM—and it’s not Kanye West. Thom Yorke, lead singer of iconic alternative band Radiohead, will be remixing a cut from DOOM’s upcoming album, Born Like This.
According to Pitchfork Media, the track in question is entitled “Gazillion Ear” and Yorke’s remix will appear as an iTunes-only bonus track on the album, which already features collaborations with Ghostface, Raekwon, and J Dilla. Born Like This is the first solo effort in five years from DOOM, who recently dropped the MF moniker from his Marvel-inspired namesake.
Yorke recently made headlines in the hip-hop world as the target of tirade from Kanye West during the taping of the Chicago emcee’s VH1 “Storytellers.” West was reportedly upset after Yorke snubbed him while backstage at February’s Grammy awards ceremony, despite West previously praising Radiohead and sampling York’s single “The Eraser” for the C.R.S. song “Us Placers.”
