I’ve written about this before: “classical” artists seem to want to cross over to pop. And pop artists want to cross over to classical. I have my theories. But I won’t go into it yet again. (You can thank me now. You can thank me later.)

After his amazing solo album, Eraser, Thom Yorke decided to turn his efforts in a classical work! With his Radiohead friend, Johny Greenwood, Thom Yorke will work with other 11 musicians (including Gorillaz and Beta Band members) to contribute for a clasical music remix album named “Cordical Songs“.

(Read here.)

I wonder if they’d like to hire a somewhat older oboist. Hmmm.

  1. Whew. When I saw the title, I first thought of the John Edwards Crossing Over. :-)

  2. Heh … nope. Not even close.

    I guess if we run across Elvis singing Bach we’ll have truly crossed over.
