As English producer Mark Pritchard readies his upcoming album, Under The Sun, he’s decided to share one of the most exciting songs from it. Premiered earlier today on BBC Radio 1, the Thom Yorke-assisted “Beautiful People” is a euphoric and haunting song with production that works perfectly with Yorke’s hypnotic vocals.
Says Pritchard of the song and Thom Yorke’s feature: “The original instrumental to Beautiful People is a personal song about loss, hopelessness and chaos, but ultimately the message is love and hope. Thom’s contribution to this collaboration captured perfectly what the piece is about. I will be forever grateful to have worked with such a immense talent.”
Under The Sun will be released on May 13 via Warp. Pritchard will also be a part of this year’s Red Bull Music Academy NYC from May 12 to 15, showcasing the new album with an installation in collaboration with visual artist, Jonathan Zawada. Thom Yorke is getting ready for Radiohead’s first world tour in four years and also working on new material.
