Thom Yorke turns in new MF DOOM remix with second take on ‘Gazzillion Ear’
Thom Yorke‘s “Man on Fire Remix” of MF DOOM‘s “Gazzillion Ear” has officially hit shelves. Yorke’s original reinterpretation of the late rapper’s 2009 track dates back to that same year, when the song received an alternative remix by Yorke, released as a bonus track on MF DOOM’s Born Like This record. The original “Monkey Hustle Remix” precedes the “Man on Fire Remix” by roughly 12 years; however, Yorke did tease the B-side remix on Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show in August of 2016.
The Radiohead frontman played the rework toward the end of the radio show, letting fans know that the remix did in fact exist. Well, here we are, 12, and then five more years later, and we’ve finally received Yorke’s “Man on Fire Remix” of “Gazzillion Ear.” Listen to the tune paired with its official visualizer below.
