Thom York’s version of “All For The Best,” has received early raves from critics. The cut was called “gorgeous” by Pitchfork, “awesome in every way” by, “absolutely jaw-dropping” by BLURT, and Stereogum wrote “fans of Radiohead, Miracle Legion, and Mulcahy should equally enjoy.” The song is being released as a single in the U.K. with a limited number of 7” being made available there and in the U.S. The recording of song, which features both Thom and Andy Yorke, was the first time that the brothers have worked together. Andy Yorke also contributed the title track to the album, “Ciao My Shining Star,” with his band Unbelievable Truth.
