Watch Thom Yorke perform stripped-back piano version of Radiohead’s 'Everything In Its Right Place' on BBC Radio 1
Yorke also performed a piano version of the new track 'Suspirium', from his first ever original film score for Luca Guadagnino’s 'Suspiria'
In late-October, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke unveiled his first ever film score for Luca Guadagnino’s highly acclaimed remake of the 1977 cult horror classic 'Suspiria'. To promote his score for the gripping horror remake, Yorke has been making the rounds over at BBC Radio. Last week, he performed a trio of songs from the soundtrack on BBC Radio 6, where he also spoke to host Mary Anne Hobbs, discussing the soundtrack, some of the influences that shaped it and his experience working alongside his children. He debuted a 60-minute mix of his favorite atmospheric records.
Continuing his promo run, the indie rock icon appeared in the latest installment of BBC Radio 1’s 'Piano Sessions'. As the title suggests, Yorke hunkered down around a piano with headphones on as he delved into a stripped-back, minimalist cover of Radiohead's 'Everything In Its Right Place', the album opener from 2001's seminal album 'Kid A'.
“Will that do? Is that all right?” Yorke can be heard enquiring sheepishly after the mind-blowing rendition. Modest much? This was followed by an intimate rendition of the 'Suspiria' track 'Suspirium'. Check out both performances below:
As he revealed recently in an interview with Spain's El Mundo, Yorke is gearing up to release a new solo album next year, which he says will be a "politically charged" album "improvised with a lot of sounds and effects" in collaboration with longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
Come December, Yorke will embark on a solo North American tour as well. You can grab tickets here.
