RADIOHEAD Singer Thom Yorke teamed up with British Prime Minister David Cameron, tennis ace Andy Murray and others to record a single that consists of two minutes of silence.

The single, titled 2 Minute Silence, goes on sale on November 7 to commemorate Remembrance Day on November 11 honouring fallen soldiers, Stereogum reported.
Music producer Mark Ronson and actor Bob Hoskins are also featured on the track - being completely silent.

"Rather than record a song, we felt the UK public would recognise the poignancy of silence and its clear association with remembrance," said Royal British Legion Director General Chris Simpkins in a statement.

2 Minute Silence is not without precedent. In 1952, experimental composer John Cage composed the piece 4'33, which consisted of four minutes and 33 seconds of a performer not playing an instrument.


Interesting concept. I like the idea since it is a way to pay tribute and it will get them lots of publicity. Not sure how much it will be played on the radio or how well it will sell though.

Its a refreshing idea and nice to see such contrasting characters getting together for a good curse.

Howdy, stranger. :)
Just joined. If you are curious, I am not a gimmick poster. Yes, a bit of a conspiracy theory fan, but for the most part tired of using similar names for accounts on different sites.
