The Smile Share New Single ‘Friend Of A Friend’

Radiohead spin-off The Smile recently released a new single, “Friend Of A Friend,” from their upcoming sophomore album, Wall of Eyes.

The song, which arrived along with an accompanying music video, features strings from the famous London Contemporary Orchestra and saxophone from Robert Stillman.

“I can go anywhere that I want / I just gotta turn myself inside out and back to front,” sings Thom Yorke at the beginning of the song. “With cut-out shapes and worn-out spaces / Add some sparkles to create the right effect / They’re all smiling, so I guess I’ll stay / At least ’til the disappointed have eaten themselves away.”

The band had previewed the song in a concert in Croatia during their 2022/23 tour.

The Wall of Eyes record, due out on January 26th via XL Recordings, is a follow-up to the band’s breakthrough debut album A Light For Attracting Attention, which arrived back in 2022.

The Smile previously released “Bending Hectic” and “Wall of Eyes” from the upcoming record.
