Arlo Parks has shared her cover of Radiohead's 'Creep' directed by Tom Dream as part of his upcoming short film Shy Radicals. The film, made with the support of the BFI Doc Society and the Ridley Scott Creative Group, is a portrait of Hamja Ahsan and the story behind his remarkable book and satirical manifesto, which calls for all shy, quiet, and introverted people to unify and overthrow extrovert-supremacy. Watch Arlo's performance here.
The cover follows Arlo’s single 'Black Dog', which she noted is "supposed to make people who are struggling feel less isolated and start a conversation surrounding the prevalence of mental health issues in today's world."
