Thom Yorke and Radiohead are working on a new album, but Yorke is not just toiling away in a studio on that stuff. On Saturday, Yorke appeared at the Latitude Festival in the United Kingdom to perform his first live show of the year.
During his performance, Yorke played songs from his second solo album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, which he released via BitTorrent in 2014. He also threw in some songs from his first solo album, The Eraser, and added a couple of unreleased songs from his side project Atoms for Peace as well for good measure. This was more than enough for fans of Yorke, one presumes, but he added a little extra by making a surprise appearance during Portishead’s show. He dropped by to provide some vocals to their song “The Rip.”
Don’t expect to see a ton more of Yorke performing this year. It is expected that Radiohead is really going to dig down on their new album come September, at which point he will likely be too busy to do any shows of his solo stuff. However, at least he had the time to perform one show for his fans in the United Kingdom where he gave them a chance to see some Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes live in action.
