Rock band Radiohead has offered a surprise Christmas gift to their fans -- a new song, which was initially recorded for the latest James Bond film Spectre.

“Last year we were asked to write a tune for Bond movie Spectre. 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,” Yorke posted on Twitter on Friday.
