Radiohead’s Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood launch new band The Smile during Glastonbury livestream

Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood launched a new band together during this past weekend’s Glastonbury livestream concert.

The group, which also features drummer Tom Skinner, played seven original songs, as well as a rendition of the Radiohead song “Skirting on the Surface,” renamed “Skating on the Surface.”

The Glastonbury livestream also featured performances from Coldplay, Blur‘s Damon Albarn, HAIM, and Wolf Alice. The virtual event was held in place of the usual in-person festival, which was canceled again this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
