Watch Thom Yorke Debut New Solo Song ‘I’m a Very Rude Person’
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke premiered a new song called "I'm a Very Rude Person" in Hollywood during a run of very select solo dates. You can watch fan-shot video of the song above.
Much of his set at the Fonda Theatre focused on previously released solo material, leaning heavily on 2014's Tomorrow's Modern Boxes. (The album, formerly available exclusively via BitTorrent, was reissued on Dec. 8 on both compact disc and vinyl.) Beyond thrilling fans with this debut, Yorke also fit in a few rarities during this first solo appearance of the year. Yorke will go on to play tomorrow in Oakland. He'll also appear at the Day for Night Festival on Dec. 17 in Houston, Texas.
It's been a busy period for Radiohead, who recently completed a string of shows in support of 2016's A Moon Shaped Pool. The band was nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility, but learned this morning that they did not make the cut. Sad though it may be for fans, the news is likely inconsequential to Radiohead. They have repeatedly rebuffed the idea and, in fact, made alternate plans for the night of the induction well ahead of today's announcement: Radiohead are playing in Buenos Aires on April 14, while the hall of fame ceremony is being held in Cleveland.
This year, Radiohead also celebrated the 20th anniversary of their OK Computer record, with the release of a OKNOTOK: OK Computer, a two-disc expanded reissue that included rarities, demos and other previously unreleased material.
