Radiohead has unearthed rare footage of Thom Yorke performing a solo piano set for the pilot episode of From The Basement. The archive dates back to 2005 and sees Yorke perform early versions of “Videotape,” “Down Is the New Up,” and “Last Flowers” featured in Radiohead’s 2007 album, In Rainbows, and “Analyse” from in his solo album, The Eraser.
For the first time, music enthusiasts can experience Yorke’s full set via the official YouTube channel of From The Basement, a series by Radiohead’s longtime producer Nigel Godrich. Over the past year, Godrich has shared a myriad of exclusive live sessions featuring The White Stripes, Albert Hammond Jr., Beck, Sonic Youth, Red Hot Chill Peppers, Thundercat, José González, Queens of the Stone Age, among others.
Yorke’s unearthed set similarly appears on Radiohead’s YouTube channel, and like Godrich, continues the band’s own project of premiering unreleased footage of live performances from the Radiohead Public Library. On April 16, Radiohead will premiere their 2017 live session from Coachella, and archival video directed by Kerry Asmussen.
