Thom Yorke of Radiohead has digitally released a new solo album, ANIMA, today via XL. Now that the album is out, you can stream it below. There’s also an accompanying short film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, a “one-reeler” set to three tracks from the album, and you can watch that over at Netflix now.

ANIMA was announced only last week and a trailer for the short film was shared at the time. A physical release is scheduled for July 19 via XL and the vinyl version includes one bonus track not on the digital release.

ANIMA was written by Yorke and produced by longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich. It includes songs previously debuted live during the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes performances. The physical version will be available on “CD, black double vinyl, limited edition orange double vinyl, and a deluxe 180g heavyweight orange double vinyl which includes a 40-page book of lyrics, and pencil drawings by Stanley Donwood and Dr Tchock.”

The trailer described a one-reeler as “a motion picture, especially a cartoon or comedy, of 10-12 minutes duration and contained on one reel of film; popular especially in the era of silent films.”

A press release announcing the album included a definition for the word “anima,” defining it as “an individual’s true inner self that in the analytic psychology of C. G. Jung reflects archetypal ideals of conduct,” adding, “also: an inner feminine part of the male personality.”

Yorke also recently announced some new North American tour dates and those are below again. The electronic shows will be with his Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes band (Yorke, Godrich, and visual artist Tarik Barri) and go down this September and October.

Last year Yorke scored his first feature film, Suspiria, and the soundtrack, Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film), was released last fall via XL.
