(Radio.com) Radiohead were hired to write the theme song for the James Bond film Spectre, which was subsequently rejected. But guitarist Jonny Greenwood's not complaining.

"It wasn't right for the film, what we did," he said in a British radio interview. "So we thought 'Great! Then it's ours. So we can finish it how it's meant to be and we can release it.' So that side of it was really positive, you know?

"But I guess there's lots of people interested in who does it. There's a lot riding on it, and the song we did was just too dark or whatever, so that's fine. Which means we get to have it back and it's ours and we got to put it out. We're really, really proud of it. Why be, like, attached to an old-fashioned idea of what a James Bond thing was and it being a big deal? It's like it's sort of stupid to get worked up about, really." Read more here.
