Published Jun 13, 2016Yesterday (June 12), an unsuspecting Reddit user received a text from their father, saying that Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke was playing a backyard garden party in Oxford, UK. The event was apparently hosted by Yorke's neighbours in celebration of the Queen's milestone 90th birthday.
The Internet was promptly informed, spurring plenty of envious responses, but now thanks to some video footage, we can all relive the bizarre glory of Yorke's outdoor solo acoustic performance.
In the clip below, he dazzles the sparse crowd with a rendition of "Reckoner." According to the redditor that broke the news, he also played "Desert Island Disk," "No Surprises," "Street Spirit," "I Might Be Wrong" and more.
Radiohead's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool will be celebrated with a special series of record store events on June 17. For now, though, watch Yorke perform "Reckoner" in his neighbours' outdoor setup.
