Watch The Smile Debut New Song “Friend Of A Friend”

Kicking off their European tour on May 16 in Zagreb, Croatia, the Smile (aka Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, plus Sons Of Kemet’s Tom Skinner) debuted a new song called “Friend Of A Friend,” which, apparently, was written that very day, as Yorke told the audience. The setlist also featured tracks from the just-released A Light For Attracting Attention and the 2009 Yorke single “FeelingPulledApartByHorses” — the first time it’s been performed since 2013.

During the encore, the Smile also performed a song called “Just Eyes And Mouth,” which Yorke said “didn’t make it onto the [Smile] record but it’s really good.”
