The Smile (Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, and former Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner) have announced their second album. Wall of Eyes, the follow-up to their excellent 2022 debut, A Light for Attracting Attention, is due out January 26 via XL Recordings. This time around they worked with producer Sam Petts-Davies instead of Nigel Godrich, and the album features string arrangements by the London Contemporary Orchestra. See the cover art and tracklist below.
The album features “Bending Hectic,” which they released back in June, and they’re now sharing the beautiful, eerie title track, and an accompanying video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Watch that below.
The Smile will be on tour in the UK and Europe in March of 2024. See all dates below.
