Radiohead are set to webcast their New Year’s gig.

During the band’s ’Thumb’s Down’ webcast last month the band parodied the Brad Pitt film ’7’.

The New Year’s webcast will feature the band performing all tracks from ’In Rainbows’. Ed O’Brien said they would be doing more cover songs.

Fansite Ateaseweb reports the band are “likely” to cover a track by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

The band have previously covered The Smiths and Bjork during their telecasts.

The performance will be aired exclusively in the USA by Current TV on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Phil Costello the head of TBD Records, Radiohead’s US record label said: “We are pleased to partner with Current for its innovative spirit.”

The webcast times are available on current.com.
