Not long ago, Radiohead announced plans to return to Nigel Godrich’s "From The Basement" series to broadcast a live performance of their latest album, The King of Limbs. The show isn't set to air until July 1st, but we've got an exciting sneak preview in the form of a new song called "Staircase," courtesy of the band's Dead Air Space website. Watch it below:
The song is a bonus performance from the podcast-turned-tv-show, which the band found success with on its visit to promote their In Rainbows album. The "From The Basement" sessions will be the first opportunity for fans to hear the majority of the finished King of Limbs material live.
Salim Mukaddam, VP Music Television at BBC Worldwide said recently: "It is a real honour to be working with Radiohead on this project. Radiohead are a band that rarely performs for television, but when they do, it's a moment to savour. There is already huge anticipation for this performance and we’re delighted that they've decided to work with us at BBC Worldwide, confirming our position as market leaders in music television. As a fan I cannot wait to see these beautiful songs brought to life in this programme."
Bryce Edge from Radiohead's management added: "This will be Radiohead's first collaboration with BBC Worldwide and the band are excited at the prospect of having their first live performance of The King of Limbs broadcast around the world. The band will be filmed and recorded by the From The Basement team, which includes Nigel Godrich their long time producer, Dilly Gent ,who commissioned many of the memorable Radiohead videos and Grant Gee who filmed the Radiohead documentary Meeting People is Easy."
