Sam Smith Throws Shade at Radiohead

By Hayden Wright

Sam Smith just won a Golden Globe for his James Bond theme, “Writing’s on the Wall.” Backstage, a reporter asked if he was surprised to hear the Radiohead song in contention for Spectre‘s signature track. His answer was, at first, rather obtuse.

“Thom Yorke?” a confused Smith offered his collaborator Jimmy Napes, who provided a lifeline with the word “Radiohead.”

“Yes, I was a little bit surprised,” continued Smith. “Not going to lie, but I haven’t listened to it personally because I did the Spectre theme song.”

Around the holidays, Radiohead released their shot at a Bond theme, simply titled “Spectre.” The band graciously explained that the partnership with studio decision-makers didn’t go anywhere.

“It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it,” the band wrote of the release.
