Listen: New tracks from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, The National

Hey, so do you remember us telling you about that super-star lineup of artists behind the Mark Mulcahy tribute “Ciao My Shining Star”? (Hint: You’re supposed to click on the link.)

Of all the tracks to preview from the set, the most anticipated is from Radiohead frontman and sometimes-solo artist Thom Yorke.

Stereogum, bless them, scored an exclusive stream of the track “All For The Best,” so this is just yet another link you’re gonna have to click on. The song was actually originally a Miracle Legion song, the troupe which Mulcahy used to front.

We’ve gotten our very own copy of the album and spun it many times already: While the contributions from Michael Stipe and The National are just as exciting, we’re particularly taken with “Love’s The Only Thing That Shuts Me Up” by David Berkeley. A lovely interpretation from a rich voice.

But, yeah, if you wanna hear The National’s take on “Ashamed Of The Story,” head straight over to Mulcahy’s MySpace page.
