Radiohead Remembers the Dead

Radiohead has released a new single in memory of the recently deceased veteran of World War I, Harry Patch. You can hear it here and buy it here. Per Radiohead's usual generous selves, all proceeds go to the Royal British Legion.

Every once in a while the world need a good war ballad. This one's sombre strings and a wailing Brit's words were inspired by Patch's last interview.

There are only three verified WWI survivors still living.
