    Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has embarked on a brief solo tour ahead of his appearance at Houston’s Day For Night Festival this weekend. The first of these shows took place in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and featured a 15-song setlist packed with new or unreleased music.

    According to a printed setlist, Yorke debuted two new songs entitled, “I Am A Very Rude Person” and “Saturdays”. Additionally, “Two Feet Off the Ground”, which soundtracked a Rag & Bone runway show in 2015, received its live debut. He also played several unreleased tracks that had previously been performed live in concert, including “Impossible Knots”, “Not the News”, and “Traffic”.
