Thom Yorke, Clark collaborate on new video for “Medicine”
Thom Yorke has shared a new collaboration with Clark for the video of the song “Medicine”, which also stars Yorke.
“Medicine” appears on Clark’s recent album Sus Dog, which NME reports is his 10th studio album and was executive produced by the Radiohead frontman.
“Medicine”, Clark said in a statement, was written about “a perfect day in nature with my wife, but also chancers, dread of time, humans as animals, addiction, the inner judge, and how it’s always other people’s narcissism, right?”
In a statement upon the announcement of the album, Yorke said he and Clark had initially connected when the latter “wrote me to say he’d started singing, looking for feedback/advice or whatever, cuz it was kind of new shark-infested waters for him [sic].”
“I’ve been into what he does for years, and I ended up being a kind of backseat driver as he pieced all the oddness of it together, which was fascinating,” Yorke said of Clark. “I wasn’t surprised to discover he came at singing and words through another door completely, which to me was the most interesting and exciting part.”
He added: “The first thing he sent me was him singing about being stuck between two floors and I was already sold. To me the way he approached it all wasn’t the usual singer songwriter guff thank god; it mirrored the way he approached all his composition and recording, but this time it had a human face. His face.”
