Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has embarked on a brief solo tour ahead of his appearance at Houston’s Day For Night Festival this weekend. The first of these shows took place in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and featured a 15-song setlist packed with new or unreleased music.
According to a printed setlist, Yorke debuted two new songs entitled, “I Am A Very Rude Person” and “Saturdays”. Additionally, “Two Feet Off the Ground”, which soundtracked a Rag & Bone runway show in 2015, received its live debut. He also played several unreleased tracks that had previously been performed live in concert, including “Impossible Knots”, “Not the News”, and “Traffic”.

Yorke released his last solo album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, in 2014. That album, along with the rest of Yorke’s solo discography, recently became available on Spotify. Next year, he’s set to make his film scoring debut with Susprisia and he’ll also tour briefly with Radiohead. Speaking of Radiohead, did you hear they were snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
