    Earlier this year it was rumored Radiohead would record the Bond theme for Spectre.

    It never appeared, Sam Smith got the honor and we all moved on with our lives.

    Until now ... Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke tweeted Friday the band had indeed recorded a song for the film but it "didn't work out."

    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 ...

    Listen to it here:

    What do you think? Should the film's directors have picked the Radiohead track over Sam Smith?
