Thom Yorke Performs New Radiohead Song “Give Up the Ghost”


Last weekend, while American ears were turned to Lollapalooza (and a crowd surfing, body stocking-clad Lady Gaga), British music fans were taking it easy at their annual Big Chill festival. But we have to imagine that the fans mustered at least a bit of energy when headliner Thom Yorke announced that he was about to perform a new Radiohead song. After the jump, watch a shaggy-headed Yorke premiere “Give Up the Ghost” — the kind of slow, plaintive, lovelorn ballad Radiohead fans have been loving since the beginning.
