The gift of music making 'rejection' two-fold.

As a Christmas gift to fans, Thom Yorke, the lead singer and songwriter of English alternative rock band, uploaded his submission for Sam Mendes' Spectre. "Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre," Yorke revealed on SoundCloud. "Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you."

The film's financial producers officially announced in September that Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall" was selected as the film's title theme. The entire debacle just proves that the greatest creative art will always find it's breathing space (or in this case, a cloud). Enjoy. The idea of releasing/uploading the unused sound work on SoundCloud as a gift to the world via internet was Santa spirit at its best. So inspiring.  bye.
