The Smile have revealed their debut single ‘You Will Never Work In Television Again’.

The new group, comprising of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet’s Tom Skinner, have also dropped an accompanying Duncan Loudon-directed lyric video.


The Smile first unveiled ‘You Will Never Work In Television Again’ during the band’s secret show as part of last year’s Glastonbury event Live At Worthy Farm. The song was produced by Yorke alongside Greenwood’s long-time collaborator Nigel Godrich.

The rock trio have also confirmed that they will play three consecutive live shows in 24 hours at Magazine, London on 29- 30 January 2022. Performing to a seated audience in the round, the shows will also be broadcast via livestream.
