In a brewing feud we’re sure will split music fans, Sam Smith is throwing some major shade at Radiohead.
Why?? Well, it all started with Bond. James Bond.
Apparently Radiohead were one of the artists asked to submit a potential theme for the latest Bond film Spectre.
Though Writing’s On The Wall was chosen for the film, the rock band decided to release their unused version, simply titled Spectre, online on Christmas Day for those that wanted to hear it.
Sam wasn’t among them.
In the press room after his Golden Globes win for Best Original Song In A Motion Picture, the Stay With Me singer was asked about it and first implied he didn’t know who frontman Thom Yorke was, then said of the alternate song:
“I haven’t listened to it personally. Because I did the Spectre theme song.”
