See Thom Yorke Break Out Radiohead Rarities at Solo Acoustic Concert

Bestinau got that-

Thom Yorke took a break from his side project The Smile to play a rare solo concert Saturday in Zermatt, Switzerland, where the singer delivered a career spanning set filled with unorthodox acoustic renditions of Radiohead songs and solo works.

One of the surprises Yorke busted on the performance was the first-ever acoustic version of In Rainbows rocker “Bodysnatchers,” the obscure 2009 one-off single “These Are My Twisted Words” played on 12-string guitar, a wildly crafted take up against “Idioteque”, the unused James Bond theme “Spectre” and the debut solo performances of A moon-shaped swimming pool‘Decks Dark’ and ‘Daydreaming’.

Leveraging his solo catalog and upcoming album Smile, Yorke delivered the first performance of “The Eraser” in 10 years, his UNKLE collaboration “Rabbit in Your Headlights”, four songs from his Suspiria soundtrack and a solo attack on the Smile’s latest single, ‘Pana-vision’.

Although it’s been six years since Radiohead released new music, Yorke recently shed a tear, preparing an album with the Smile alongside Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood and recording two new songs, “5.17” and “That’s How Horses Are”, for the last season of Peaky Blinders
