Watch Thom Yorke and co play two unreleased tracks on Nigel Godrich’s show
Radiohead have debuted two new songs online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the session in full.
The band, who recently released their new album ‘The King of Limbs’, played the new tracks ‘The Daily Mail’ and ‘Staircase’ as part of a session for Nigel Godrich’s ‘From the Basement’ website.
An audio clip of their performance of ‘Staircase’ was made available last month (June 21), but a video of the band’s whole performance has now surfaced online.
Radiohead – who played a similar session on the show in 2008 as they showcased their album ‘In Rainbows’ – also played all eight tracks from ‘The King of Limbs’ for the recording, which was aired on European television channel Canal+ over the past weekend.
‘The Daily Mail’ was one of three new tracks that singer Thom Yorke debuted in a solo performance in Cambridge last year, at a benefit show for the Green Party. The other new songs he performed, ‘Lotus Flower’ and ‘Give Up The Ghost’, were both included on ‘The King of Limbs’.
Earlier this month, Radiohead launched their own ‘weibo’ blog in China, despite having been critical of the country’s human rights record in the past.
