The Smile are Jonny Greenwood / Thom Yorke (Radiohead) and drummer Tom Skinner (Dons of Kemet), with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
In a promo email Johnny have announced their new single "You Will Never Work In Television Again" and a livestreamed concert at the end of January.
"Over the last 18 months or so, Thom and I have been working on a collection of songs with drummer Tom Skinner*, something we have latterly named The Smile. The album is just about finished – Nigel Godrich has produced it, and we’re nearly at the track-listing stage, where there are 6227020800 possible song orders.
Until that’s decided – here's one song: it’s called ‘You Will Never Work In Television Again.’
We are also excited to announce a launch concert – actually 3 different concerts in 15 hours, streamed live across 3 time zones from London, so people outside the UK can see us play at sensible times.This means us playing at non-sensible times, which are, in Greenwich Mean Time:
Saturday January 29th at 8pm
Sunday January 30th at 1am
Sunday January 30th at 11am
Each show will be a little different – I mean, they’re bound to be – and we’re building a special venue inside another venue – at a place called Magazine in London.
This means that, as well as the livestream, there will also be a real concert in a real venue
