That Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke might be releasing a 12-inch single has been the subject of much speculation the past few days, and today Yorke officially confirmed the disc's existence.

A double-A sided vinyl single, it will include the songs FeelingPulledApartbyHorses (see an early version on video below) and The Hollow Earth.

Yorke posted on Radiohead's website, explaining that the single will be available on 21 September. It can be ordered from the site, it'll be stocked in record shops and eventually will be accessible via online services.

Thom Yorke's statement:

"Dear Sir or Madam,
This is to inform you of the release of two more bits of work shortly. They are loosely under the Thom Yorke name this time, although these days it's all getting kind of blurry.

"FeelingPulledApartbyHorses is written & played by Jonny and I and is a radical rework of an old tune that's been kicking around without a home since 2001? I think.

"The Hollow Earth is a bass menace that was born out of the Eraser period but needed a little more time.

"Both were produced by Nigel Godrich as ever. And mastered by Bob Ludwig. They are being put out on 12" with sliced sleeve by Stanley and Tchock.

"My sources tell me this will be available from the 21st of September if you're interested.. On sale in the w.a.s.t.e part of our website (with a gratis download.)

"Then later on there will be like a normal download thing I think around the 6th of Oct through the usual channels. And so it goes. all the best"
