A preview of Thom Yorke's first theatre score has made its way online.

The Radiohead frontman previously announced he was composing music for an upcoming Broadway play in New York City. A trailer containing a snippet of Yorke's score for a new production of Harold Pinter's Old Times has now been revealed by Roundabout Theatre Company.

Douglas Hodge, the director of the play, spoke on Yorke's score saying, "The music Thom has written for Old Times gives an immediacy and a 'now?ness' to the show. The play itself is about memory and love — Thom's music works backwards and forwards and plays with time and repetition in the same way Pinter does. In true Thom Yorke?style, the music is epic, heartbreaking, irresistible, and complex. I'm hopeful this collaboration will result in a new kind of theatergoer coming to our show."

Old Times, which stars Clive Owen, Eve Best and Kelly Reilly, runs at American Airlines Theatre from October 6 through to November 29.
