Red Hot Chili Peppers bass guitarist Flea revealed his thoughts about the song that he made with Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke by sharing a new post on his official Twitter account.
As you might already know, Thom Yorke and Flea have been playing together at Atoms For Peace, which is a supergroup that Yorke created. In 2019, Thom and Flea released a new song titled ‘Daily Battles‘ and it was shortlisted for Best Original Song at 92nd Academy Awards.
Recently, a fan shared his thoughts about this song on Twitter and asked Flea about the idea behind using a trumpet in the song. Later on, Flea replied to his fan and said that the sound is just a beautifully applied echo for the song.
Additionally, Flea revealed that he played the trumpet in the recordings and stated that Thom and the producer of Radiohead and the member of their supergroup, Nigel Godrich, arranged it after the recordings.
Here’s what a fan of Flea asked:
“Flea, just listened to ‘Daily Battles’ and I weeped so much! This song is so moving and touching, and goes well with the film, Motherless Brooklyn! That’s how I discovered it! Please tell me what distortion are you using for the trumpet? ❤️”
To which Flea replied:
“I played the trumpet straight, Thom and Nigel treated it afterward, I believe it is just a beautifully applied echo.”
