Watch Radiohead cover Portishead

Thom Yorke tries out his own version of the group's new single

Radiohead have released a video of themselves covering Portishead‘s new single ‘The Rip’.

The performance, which featured only Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood playing acoustic guitars, was recorded backstage before a gig in St Louis in the US on May 14.

Yorke and Greenwood‘s version alters the original track, which featured on the Bristol band’s recent ‘Third’, released earlier this year, by sticking to the acoustic beginning and leaving out the more electronic later section.
