Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have introduced a brand new venture known as the Smile. Becoming a member of them within the band are producer Nigel Godrich and drummer Tom Skinner (aka Hello Skinny). The quartet makes its debut in the present day (Could 22) on the ticketed Glastonbury livestream occasion Live at Worthy Farm. The livestream begins at 7 p.m. BST (2 p.m. Jap), and the Smile are slated to play at 11 p.m. BST (6 p.m. Jap).
The Smile take their take from a Ted Hughes poem. In keeping with a press launch, they’ll debut new, authentic music at Reside at Worthy Farm. Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Eavis mentioned in an announcement, “We’re actually honoured that Thom and Jonny have chosen our livestream occasion to premiere their model new venture, The Smile. Sadly, we’re all unable to assemble collectively at Worthy Farm, however alongside units from different great performers, this has all of the makings of a particular Glastonbury second—and one we will broadcast to the world.”
The fellows of Radiohead aren’t any strangers to facet tasks. Thom Yorke shaped Atoms for Peace with Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco in 2009; they launched their debut AMOK in 2013. As well as, he plays shows along with his Tomorrow’s Fashionable Bins band of Godrich and Tarik Barri.
Whereas Jonny Greenwood doesn’t all the time identify his collaborations, he works usually with non-Radiohead musicians for his movie scores and soundtracks. As well as, in 2015, he launched Junun with Shye Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Categorical.
