This may be the first time Thom and his younger brother, Andy, have appeared on the same album. Both are contributing songs to Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy to help the former Miracle Legion front man continue making music while he raises his three-year old twin daughters.

If you weren’t aware, Andy Yorke has had his own band called Unbelievable Truth. They’ve been broken up for a while but appear to be back together, we think.

Thom is contributing a cover of “All for the Best” while Unbelievable Truth are providing the title track, “Ciao My Shining Star.”

Here’s the full tracklist:

01 Thom Yorke – “All For The Best”
02 The National – “Ashamed Of The Story I Told”
03 Michael Stipe – “Everything’s Coming Undone”
04 David Berkeley – “Loves The Only Thing That Shuts Me Up”
05 Dinosaur Jr. – “The Backyard”
06 Chris Harford & Mr Ray Neal – “Micon The Icon”
07 Frank Black – “Bill Jocko”
08 Vic Chesnutt – “Little Man”
09 Unbelievable Truth – “Ciao My Shining Star”
10 Butterflies Of Love – “I Have Patience”
11 Chris Collingwood (Fountains Of Wayne) – “Cookie Jar”
12 Frank Turner – “The Quiet One”
13 Rocket From The Tombs – “In Pursuit Of Your Happiness”
14 Ben Kweller – “Wake Up Whispering”
15 Josh Rouse – “I Woke Up In The Mayflower”
16 Autumn Defense – “Paradise”
17 Hayden -“Happy Birthday Yesterday”
18 Juliana Hatfield – “We’re Not In Charleston Anymore”
19 Mercury Rev – “Sailors And Animals”
20 Elvis Perkins – “She Watches Over Me”
21 Sean Watkins – “A World Away From This One”

Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy is out on September 29.

  • I bought “Simple” and IT IS VERY SIMPLE!! jaja, it is ok, it sounds like a very minimalist radiohead, I recommend this song called “Let it be true” and “One in a million” They are great!

    Thom’s brother’s hot. Andy was probably the parent’s favorite. No wonder Thom has such a chip on his shoulder.

    @ Tara: Uh, what? First of all, I don’t think parents decided upon their favorite child by the measure of how “hot” they are. Secondly, Thom is the older brother by four years, and, by the way, the lead singer of RADIOHEAD, so if anyone has a chip on their shoulder, it’s the infinitely less successful younger brother.

    And Thom doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder, he’s just weird and paranoid and an alien from outer space.
