The Smile Release New Song ‘Bending Hectic’

    The Smile – the trio of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood with drummer Tom Skinner – have returned with a new single called ‘Bending Hectic’. The standalone track was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London earlier this year, with production from Sam Petts-Davies and strings by the London Contemporary Orchestra. Listen to it below.

    The Smile debuted ‘Bending Hectic’ during their set at the Montreux Jazz Festival last year, though it was not included on the subsequent live album The Smile (Live at Montreux Jazz Festival, July 2022). It marks their first new music since their debut LP, A Light for Attracting Attention.
