Radiohead to Perform The King of Limbs Live on From the Basement
Radiohead is set to perform their newest album The King of Limbs live, in its entirety for a BBC broadcast. The band will collaborate with long-time producer Nigel Godrich for the performance through his From the Basement project, a podcast-turned-television program that aims to capture intimate, live performances without the distraction of a host or an audience.
Radiohead did a similar full-album live performance as a special New Year’s Eve webcast to promote the physical release of In Rainbows. The band has also previously appeared on From the Basement as well.
The forthcoming performance will be recorded by Godrich, along with two other former Radiohead collaborators; Dilly Gent, who has commissioned the band’s music videos since OK Computer and Grant Gee, director of Radiohead documentary Meeting People is Easy.
As the band has yet to announce any tour dates so far, this will be the first chance for fans to hear what material from the new album will sound like played live. The 55-minute broadcast is also expected to include some behind-the-scenes footage.
Radiohead – The King of Limbs Live From the Basement will air internationally through BBC on July 1. Until then, check out video of the last time the band stopped by From the Basement below:
