Adding to its growing status as an ongoing mixed-media project, Radiohead has recorded a live session of The King of Limbs in its entirety plus additional tracks for the Nigel Godrich BBC series, From The Basement. You can check out a preview of the performance below in the synth-heavy, percussive, appropriately shadowy new song "Staircase" in anticipation of its July 1 premiere. The video features a loose and upbeat Thom Yorke—though he’s not quite at his "Lotus Flower" (or "Single Ladies") dancing peak—as well as assistance from Clive Deamer, drummer for Portishead and Robert Plant’s backing band The Strange Sensation.
