Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke released a new track to the Mark Mulcahy tribute set “Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy,” and now the song has gotten a visual makeover.
“All For the Best” looks like an ode to a memory, and to the life a loved one, with fade-outs, some slow motion and a green screen. Still, it’s a good interpretation of the agony and mixed emotions of loss, with a nod to Mulcahy’s late wife Melissa.
The album came about, actually, due to Mulcahy’s situation after Melissa passed. The former Miracle Legion songwriter has been trying to raise his kids alone after her 2008. “Ciao My Shining Star” is not only a Mulcahy song, but his parting words to her in her obituary.
Drummers should now all be required to play with glitter on their snare.
