The coronavirus pandemic isn’t keeping some musicians from getting new tunes out there to the masses. Among the latest comes from Thom Yorke, front man of Radiohead, who debuted a solo song titled “Plasticine Figures” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night.

In typical Thom Yorke fashion, the song’s a hushed, haunting little composition, and you can experience it below:

As Yorke mentions, the song was finished recently, though it’s unclear at this point whether it’s a new solo song, a song for Radiohead’s next album, or something else.

In related news, Radiohead recently began a weekly series of unearthing archival concert films on YouTube as a means of keeping the entertainment going while everybody is stuck at home. The next installment in the series is a good one: the band’s headlining performance from the 2012 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which is scheduled to “go live” at 2 p.m. PDT on Thursday:

This would also be a great time to remind you to watch the new Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert documentary if you haven’t yet.

Premiered on April 10 on what would have been the first day of the mega-festival had it not been rescheduled to October, the film perfectly captures the essence of what has made Coachella the cultural institution it is today:
