Watch Radiohead side-project The Smile debut new track ‘Bodies Laughing’

"So, yesterday we wrote another new song," Thom Yorke told the crowd during a recent gig in Berlin

Radiohead side-project The Smile debuted a new song called ‘Bodies Laughing’ during a recent show in Berlin – check out the footage below.

The trio – comprising Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner – are currently out on a European headline tour in support of their debut album ‘A Light For Attracting Attention’, which came out earlier this month.

Last Friday (May 20) saw The Smile perform an unreleased number as part of a 16-track set at the German capital’s Tempodrom venue (via Setlist.FM).


Footage of the first ‘Bodies Laughing’ airing has since emerged online. “So, yesterday we wrote another new song,” Yorke told the crowd. “So we’re gonna try and play it.” You can watch it here:

Earlier on the tour, The Smile treated fans in Zagreb, Croatia to another new track titled ‘Friend Of A Friend’.

Meanwhile, the group have joined the line-up for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ show at All Points East in London this summer.

In a four-star review of The Smile’s ‘A Light For Attracting Attention’, NME wrote: “In cutting some new shapes, this supergroup have been set loose to make some of the most arresting and satisfying music of their careers. Christ, it sounds like they’re having fun – or, at least, as much fun as can be had in trading in this kind of jazzed-up misery.”
