Thom Yorke has added a slate of tour dates around North America and Europe. He’ll be joined by Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri for the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes shows, playing music from across Yorke’s solo catalog. Find the dates below.
Yorke recently released the solo album ANIMA. He also contributed a new song called “Daily Battles” to the soundtrack for Motherless Brooklyn, a film directed by and starring Edward Norton.
Anima is also Yorke’s first number-one album on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart. “Associations moving across minimalism and ambient, the electronics of the nineties and early noughties, ‘intelligent dance music’, a hint of trip-hop up to the current club rumbling,” writes Patrik Garaj in the Denník N’s review and continues: “Anima works like a pyramid. You ascend gradually, reach the top and you finish in the created mood. Soon you will most likely realize that you want to remain on top for longer. That is where you find Dawn Chorus, one of the best achievements of York’s whole career. For real.”
The song is also part of the great 15-minute film Anima by Oscar-winning director Paul Thomas Anderson, set in Prague (and the French village of Les Baux-de-Provence), starring Thom’s partner Dajan Roncione.
The trio previously toured together in 2015 following the self-titled release of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ debut album and recently embarked on a lengthy North American fall tour. The upcoming run of shows will encompass “work from across Thom’s solo material.”
