with special guest Robert Stillman
Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Tom Skinner’s first tour of the U.S. and Canada as The Smile comes in support of the new band's debut album, A Light for Attracting Attention, which was released digitally May 13 (and will be available in physical formats June 17th), via XL Recordings to unanimous accolades including:
“… a leaner take on Radiohead’s longstanding thoughts of alienation and malaise, pushing rhythm into the foreground” —THE NEW YORK TIMES
“… a remarkably assured debut… The Smile contain multitudes.” —PASTE
"Alternately combats the horrors of modern life with roiling anger and Zen-like serenity.” —PITCHFORK
"Some of the songwriters’ most easily enjoyable music in years” —ROLLING STONE
"A most welcome vibe flip from musicians who absolutely refuse to shy away from the unknown.” —SPIN
"Sounds impeccable, perfectly balancing the delicacies of Greenwood’s circular, minor-key licks and Yorke’s choir-boy trilling with the more bombastic elements of the orchestra and brass sections… Skinner is too good of a drummer to be reduced to mere sideman... His spirited syncopations echo throughout the record, giving the music a relentless pull even when the music slows to an atmospheric, piano-based crawl.”
“… an exceptional record... inhabiting a sound world of its own.”
—WALL STREET JOURNAL
Produced by Nigel Godrich and featuring additional critically acclaimed singles "You Will Never Work In Television Again,” "Skrting On The Surface," "Pana-vision," "Free In The Knowledge” and “Thin Thing," A Light For Attracting Attention features strings by the London Contemporary Orchestra and a full brass section of contemporary UK jazz players including Byron Wallen, Theon and Nathaniel Cross, Chelsea Carmichael, Robert Stillman and Jason Yarde.
