Watch: Thom Yorke Performs Radiohead’s ‘Spectre’ Live, Debuts New Song

First ever live performance of the discarded James Bond film theme

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke kicked off his solo tour in Florence, Italy Tuesday night, debuting some new music as well as delivering a live rendition of Radiohead’s “Spectre.” It marks the first time the song has been played live.

“Spectre” was intended for the 2015 James Bond film of the same name, but was rejected by producers. It later appeared as a B-side on the “Burn the Witch” single from Radiohead’s 2016 record A Moon Shaped Pool.

Yorke also debuted a new track reportedly called “The Axe” during the Teatro Verdi gig Tuesday. Watch that clip below.
