A couple of years ago, Thom Yorke danced into the music world's heart with the video for Radiohead's "Lotus Flower." It was a simple concept, finally committing the frontman's spastic dancing to tape, in a mesmerizingly simple spot. So with Yorke now launching his new project Atoms For Peace, he's once again tapping his feet for some attention, though offering a bit of a twist, and getting a new partner.

A couple of years ago, Thom Yorke danced into the music world's heart with the video for Radiohead's "Lotus Flower." It was a simple concept, finally committing the frontman's spastic dancing to tape, in a mesmerizingly simple spot. So with Yorke now launching his new project Atoms For Peace, he's once again tapping his feet for some attention, though offering a bit of a twist, and getting a new partner.

Director Garth Jennings ("Son Of Rambow" and part of team Hammer & Tongs who have worked with Blur, R.E.M., Fatboy Slim and Radiohead) who helmed "Lotus Flower," has reteamed with Yorke for "Ingenue." This time, the spot is in color, and Yorke's flailing limbs are kept in check by a dance partner, in something that's more interpretive and less freeform. Choreographer Wayne McGregor coordinated the steps, and it's altogether a different and distinctly unique experience. And the song is pretty damn good too. Turn it up, watch below. [Pitchfork]
