They will play their debut performance on this weekend's Live At Worthy Farm stream

Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have formed a new trio with jazz drummer and Sons Of Kemet member Tom Skinner, called The Smile.

The trio will present their first live performance tonight (May 22) as part of Glastonbury's Live At Worthy Farm stream, with the festival today revealing them as the lineup's previously unnamed special guests. Nigel Godrich, Radiohead's longtime producer and member of another of Yorke's projects in Atoms For Peace, is also said to be involved in The Smile, with the group taking their name from a Ted Hughes poem of the same name.

Glastonbury's ticketed Live At Worthy Farm stream kicks off tonight at 7pm BST, and will also feature the likes of Kano, PJ Harvey and Wolf Alice, among others. The Smile will play a set of all new, original music. Find more information here.
