The Smile Releases New Song “Thin Thing”
- British rock band The Smile, consisting of Thom Yorke (vocals/guitar) and Jonny Greenwood (guitar/bass) and Tom Skinner (drums), will release their debut album “A Light for Attracting Attention” this Friday (May 13).
From the album, the band released the final promotional single “Thin Thing” along with the stop-motion video.
The track was written by Jonny Greenwood, Nigel Godrich, Thom Yorke and Tom Skinner. Produced by Nigel Godrich.
The video was directed by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña.
The band said of the song in a statement, “Hearing the song for the first time, we imagined a frenetic fluid that carries machines, pieces of human bodies and carnivorous plants. When presenting the idea to the band, Thom [Yorke] told us about a dream that made him write the song. We believe the video is the conjunction of these two things.”
- The album comprises 13-track, produced by Nigel Godrich.
Jonny Greenwood shared on social media, “A release date for our new album A Light For Attracting Attention, a new song, the artwork that Thom and Stanley have been painting all winter - and a sense that we will get to share, at last, our new music in full. I feel grateful that we managed, with Nigel's help, to record these songs in a way they deserve. And the singles released so far have been liked - as far as I can tell - which makes me feel dangerously confident in the rest of the record.
So yes, we're properly proud and excited for everyone to have the whole thing - but, it's been a drawn-out process so far, with so many single songs released. I can only apologise for our tentativeness. But, come May 13th, all digital copies will be with you and physical copies will be available from June 17th.”
