It's the first time he's played it with the band in 15 years
The song has been a fan favorite and dates back around two decades, having regularly aired at Radiohead shows. While the track ended up on their acclaimed 2016 album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool‘, it was a more minimal piano-led version – with the band performing the latter incarnation on subsequent tours.
While Yorke has occasionally rolled out it out at solo shows over the last decade, this weekend’s show at Soundhearts Festival in Rio De Janeiro was the first time that he played the original acoustic version with Radiohead since 2003. Check it out below.
Radiohead’s setlist was:
Everything in Its Right Place
I Might Be Wrong
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
All I Need
Desert Island Disk
The National Anthem
True Love Waits
This tour has seen also Thom Yorke stun fans with an unplanned acapella performance of ‘The Gloaming‘.
Radiohead will also play more dates in South America throughout April before hitting North America in the summer. Meanwhile, guitarist Ed O’Brien is also set to release a solo album, while Thom Yorke recently announcing a UK and European solo tour. Not only that, but Colin Greenwood recently lent bass duties to newcomer Tamino on the track ‘Indigo Night‘.
