‘Daily Battles’ will appear in new flick Motherless Brooklyn...

Thom Yorke has penned a new song for Edward Norton's incoming film Motherless Brooklyn.

The Radiohead frontman seems to be in a rich creative phase in his life, penning the score for 2018's Suspiria remake and releasing his recent solo album 'ANIMA' to outstanding acclaim.

At the time of release, Clash wrote in a 9/10 review: "‘ANIMA’ in many ways feel like it exists on its own, in a solitary void.

Stylistically, it draws on Thom Yorke’s electronic impulses, on his attraction to club culture’s more fractured, introspective elements; tracks bleed in and out of one another, with the over-arching structure leaning on the DJ set as a central spine."

Now Thom Yorke's involvement with the latest Edward Norton cinematic venture has been confirmed.

The actor revealed in a recent interview that the songwriter's new piece 'Daily Battles' will appear on the score for new film Motherless Brooklyn.

Based on Jonathan Lethem’s 1999 novel, the heavyweight cast also features Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, and Alec Baldwin.

Edward Norton told Rolling Stone: “I wanted Thom to write an old-world melancholy ballad... I wanted his voice to be the properties for [Norton’s character] Lionel’s voice.”

Renowned trumpet player and composer Wynton Marsalis has overseen the score for the film, and has seemingly produced a jazz arrangement of 'Daily Battles'.

Motherless Brooklyn will go on general release this November.
