The track which appears on the soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' was debuted by Radiohead onstage in 2006.

During their expansive 2006 tour, Radiohead worked on a number of songs that wound up on 2007's masterful In Rainbows. They also performed "Spooks," a minute-long instrumental doodle driven by tense surf-rock guitars. While Radiohead never released a studio version of the track, "Spooks" is now in alternate form for the soundtrack of Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, with guitarist Jonny Greenwood alongside Supergrass members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey.

This new version which is available for streaming at Stereogum is more atmospheric than the Radiohead track, with the original descending guitar line slowed and twisted into a Robby Krieger-esque drone.

When the "Spooks" news first came out, various outlets reported that the soundtrack would feature a full-on Radiohead version.
Greenwood composed the full score for Inherent Vice, with the soundtrack which features "Spooks," along with nine Greenwood compositions and songs from Neil Young, Can and more – set for release on December 15th via Nonesuch. A vinyl edition will follow on March 3rd. The film which is an adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel set in the psychedelic Sixties, is out on December 12th and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin and Owen Wilson.
This is the third collaboration between Greenwood and Anderson. The duo, who previously worked together on soundtracks for 2007’s Oscar-winning “There Will Be Blood “and 2012’s The Master.
