Sam Smith won the Golden Globe for ‘Spectre’ this week, but for many there’s a new ‘Spectre’ in town.

Radiohead’s recent new song of the same name began life as a prospective Bond song. The song was a surprise release on Christmas Day which has only caused more excitement as their mysterious new album grows closer. One journalist asked Smith about this other ‘Spectre’ at a Golden Globes press conference, which led to a lot of uncomfortable moments in only 25 seconds.

First, confused by the reference to Thom Yorke, Smith turns to his collaborator Jimmy Napes, rephrasing the name as a question. ‘Thom Yorke?” “Radiohead,” says Napes quickly before breaking his previously confident gaze to stare awkwardly at his feet for the remaining time.

“Was I shocked? I was a little bit surprised, not gonna lie,” says Smith, stalling. “But I haven’t listened to it personally because I did the Spectre theme song,” he adds in the brattiest tone possible while pointing to himself to make clear who spent 20 minutes writing the official theme song.

It’s all there in that painfully perfect picture above. Watch the video and revisit the good ‘Spectre’ below.
