Last month, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their 2019 inductees, a list which includes Radiohead. However, in a new interview with Variety, frontman Thom Yorke divulged that he will not be in attendance for the induction ceremony on March 29th at Brooklyn, NY’s Barclays Center.
Yorke clearly seems to enjoy New York City though, as the musician recently stopped by Electric Lady Studios for a special four-song in-studio performance. The set included piano and acoustic guitar renditions of “Suspirium”, “Unmade”, and “Open Again”, off of Yorke’s score for the remake of cult-classic horror film, Suspiria, for which he’s on the shortlist for an Oscar nomination in the “Best Original Song” category. Yorke also worked through a take on the Radiohead favorite “Bloom”.

Last week, Radiohead released a bonus track from their most recent studio album, 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool, on streaming services for the first time ever. “Ill Wind”, a characteristically eerie Radiohead number, was previously available as a CD single (along with rejected would-be James Bond theme song, “Spectre”) as part of the A Moon Shaped Pool vinyl package.
