Song Information

"Analyse" is a song by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and is the second track on his 2006 album The Eraser. The song was released on 30 October as a digital download and on 6 November as a limited edition 12" single in the United Kingdom. "Analyse" was inspired by a blackout in Oxford. Yorke "used to live in central Oxford, on one of those historical streets, with all these houses built in the 1860s. I came home one night and for some reason, the street had a power cut. The houses were all dark, with candlelight in the windows, which is obviously how it would have been when they were built. It was beautiful."Analyse" was played by Yorke at the 2006 Mercury Prize ceremony. The song is also featured during the closing credits of Christopher Nolan's 2006 film The Prestige, starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. A remix of this song has been done by Various Productions which Thom Yorke described on the Radiohead blog Dead Air Space as 'a deranged twist'. Show video tutorial!
