Radiohead introduces set with Nina Simone

Radiohead kicked off their US tour last night in NYC to promote their new album A Moon Shaped Pool. 

They opened with a snippet from a 1968 interview with Nina Simone:

“I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: No fear. I mean, really – no fear.”

Radiohead, like Prophets of Rage (aka Rage Against the Machine + Chuck D), is making their tour political.

Radiohead named their 2006 album Hail to the Thief to mock the faulty ballot recount that decided the 2000 Presidential Election.

With their home country leaving Europe in Brexit and a US election that could result in Trump’s favor, we should expect Radiohead’s next album to share a familiar rebuke.
