The three of them collaborated on the song, which samples Greenwood’s ‘Proven Lands’ from the There Will Be Blood soundtrack and began streaming on Pitchfork today.

Yorke has worked with DOOM previously, remixing his tune ‘Gazillion Ear’ from Born Like This.

‘Retarded Fren’ will appear on a 10-year anniversary compilation for Lex Records, alongside tracks from Boom Bip, plus he and Gruff Rhys’s Neon Neon project, and Doseone and Fog’s Crook&Flail.

It will be released track-by-track each week, beginning today, and the whole thing will come out on picture disc vinyl in January next year.

DOOM and Ghostface Killah will do a one-off show at London’s Roundhouse on Saturday November 5 for the label.

In the meantime, check out ‘Retarded Fren’, streaming here.
