Thom Yorke

You’re singing a duet with Thom Yorke from Radiohead in "I’ve seen it all" on the new album. Is he an intense personality as well ?

Yes, but in a very different way. I respect him very much. He’s very shy and uncertain and doesn’t reveal too much of himself. That’s why it’s quite hard for me to explain what he’s like. I can’t do him justice. But he’s a very special person.

When he enters a room he affects the whole atmosphere in a very positive way. I also admire his great loyalty towards his band. He sees himself as a member and writer of Radiohead. His work is based on communication and understanding. He’s very down-to-earth and not egocentric at all.

We worked together for three or four days, which I’m very grateful about. We worked together with songs, which I had worked on during three years not knowing what to do with them. Thanks to him these songs saw a new light of day and that was a wonderful experience.
