Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is working on a collaboration with the rapper MF Doom. In an interview with 3D World Magazine, Doom said “[We’re] working on some duets,” but further explained that their music thus far has been “preliminary shit” but that they will “probably end up doing a whole record together.” Yorke had previously worked with MF Doom on a remix of “Gazzillion Ear,” a track from the rapper’s 2009 album Born Like This.

Doom, who has gone by the names King Geedorah and Viktor Vaughn in the past, is no stranger to album-length collaborations. In 2005 he teamed up with Danger Mouse for The Mouse and the Mask, a record credited to Danger Doom. He is also half of the duo Madvillain with DJ and producer Madlib. A second Madvillain album is expected later this year.

Yorke has been very busy recently. In addition to releasing a new album with Radiohead and DJing in Los Angeles, the singer also worked with electronic producers Burial and Four Tet on a new limited-edition 12-inch single that has already sold out its first print run.
