Watch: Watch Radiohead perform acoustic version of ‘True Love Waits’ for the first time in over a decade

Watch Radiohead perform acoustic version of ‘True Love Waits’ for the first time in over a decade

The version was brought back at the band’s Rio De Janeiro show.

Radiohead are currently playing a handful of South American shows, and brought an extremely special throwback to their Rio De Janeiro show.

At the gig as part of Soundhearts Festival, Thom Yorke performed a solo version of ‘True Love Waits’, the first time he’s done so in over a decade.

The track was originally performed in this way regularly, appearing as such on the band’s 2001 live album ‘I Might Be Wrong’.

A proper studio version only arrived on 2016’s ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, though, and saw the track take a significantly different shape.

The original, acoustic version was resurrected in Rio, and given an absolutely gorgeous run-through. Watch below.
