Thom Yorke Performs Three New Songs With Nigel Godrich at Tokyo Concert
According to Stereogum, they're titled "Impossible Knots," "Not The News," and "Traffic." Check them out below, featuring visuals from artist Tarik Barri.
The rest of Yorke's set list was fleshed out with tracks from his 2006 solo album The Eraser, Atoms For Peace's Amok, and last year's solo album, Tomorrow's Modern Boxes. In fact, this was his first performance in support of Boxes, following Yorke's surprise performance with Portishead at Suffolk, England's Latitude Festival on July 18. Also on hand in Tokyo was longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, who teamed with Yorke in Atoms For Peace alongside Flea, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco.
Yorke revealed earlier this week that he's providing original music for a new Broadway presentation of the 1971 Harold Pinter play Old Times.
As for Radiohead, the band is working on new material, though nothing concrete like an album title or release date has been announced. The band's Jonny Greenwood did reveal in June that the new batch of songs includes a reworked version of "Lift," a track Radiohead performed as early as 1996.
But given the context of the new songs from the Japan show, it's probable they're from some sort of Yorke-Godrich collaboration, rather than Radiohead.
