Watch Thom Yorke perform haunting new ballad ‘Daily Battles’ on ‘Colbert’

The track is taken from Edward Norton's new movie

Thom Yorke has performed a new song, ‘Daily Battles’, on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

The Radiohead frontman performed the song yesterday (November 14) during his second appearance of 2019 on the nighttime show. ‘Daily Battles’ is taken from Motherless Brooklyn, a new film written, produced and directed by Edward Norton.


Yorke recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to perform three songs from his new album ANIMA. He also released the music video for album single ‘Last I Heard (…He Was Circling the Drain)’.

Last month (October 18), Yorke added new US dates to his originally planned 2020 UK and Europe solo tour.

As well as adding a second Manchester date to the UK leg of the tour last month, the musician revealed additional shows in New York City for March and April. He’ll also stop by Mexico in late April.

Further dates are scheduled in the UK and Europe beginning in June, including appearances at Poland’s Open’er Festival and Denmark’s Roskilde Festival.
