The Smile will perform three intimate performances, livestreamed from London, on January 29th and 30th.
The Smile, the new group comprising Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet’s Tom Skinner, have unveiled their debut single: ‘You Will Never Work In Television Again’.
The track, which is accompanied by a lyric video directed by Duncan Loudon was first heard in the band’s secret show as part of last year’s Glastonbury event Live At Worthy Farm. It is the first official release from The Smile, produced by Nigel Godrich.
