Well, well, well, what do we have here? It looks like there's one little present left under the Christmas tree, and if you're a Radiohead fan you'll likely be pleased. Lead singer Thom Yorke has posted a brand new single online, called "You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry," and you can stream or download it right now for free, though you should really pay what you think the track is worth.

The song joins Yorke's impressive collection of solo work, including his most recent album, Tomorrow's Modern Boxes. But we wouldn't blame you for connecting the track with Radiohead — indeed, the single evokes some of the group's best work from 2007's In Rainbows. Like that album, the single is available through a pay-what-you-wish model. According to Rolling Stone, an "unfinished" version of the track has been around since 2013, but this marks the single's first true public release.

Along with the new single, Yorke has also published Tomorrow's Modern Boxes to Bandcamp. Until today, it's been sold exclusively as a BitTorrent bundle for $6. Yorke says Bandcamp is "less technical for some peeps than BitTorrent."
