Unravel

Dans le numéro d’août 2006 de Spin, Thom Yorke détaille un peu ce qu’il aime, et il cite « Unravel » de Björk, expliquant qu’il aimerait bien que Radiohead en fasse une reprise.

Björk, « Unravel »
« While you are away, my heart comes undone/Slowly unravels in a ball of yarn/The devil collects it with a grin. » I’m trying to get Radiohead to do a cover, because I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. »
— Thom Yorke / Spin, août 2006

Le vendredi 9 novembre 2007, le groupe enregistre en studio sa reprise.

La vidéo sera diffusée le lendemain.

Pitchfork: Another great thing about the webcast was all the covers you guys played, like the Smiths’ « The Headmaster Ritual » and Bjork’s « Unravel », it looked like you were just goofing off.

Yeah. In rehearsals yesterday, Thom, Ed and I were running through a Siouxie and the Banshees cover called « Happy House » and Jonny [Greenwood]– the young one– was like, « What the fuck is this? » And we’re like, « You know, Siouxie and the Banshees! Check out Juju. » The version of « Unravel » on the webcast was the first time we were running through it and we just kept it because it was so tentative. You could tell we were feeling our way through it, which is very nice to see, isn’t it? It’s what I loved about playing the songs from In Rainbows on the second webcast– you can see there are moments in each song where things swim in and out of focus a bit.

En fin d’année 2012, le groupe a régulièrement joué l’intro de la chanson pour commencer Everything In Its Right Place.
