The Smile: A Light for Attracting Attention LP

Availability: In stock

A Light For Attracting Attention is the debut from The Smile, but they’re "Not The Smile as in ha-ha-ha, more The Smile as in the guy who lies to you every day"...  speaks Thom Yorke on the inspiration behind the supergroup that consists of his Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood, and drummer Tom Skinner of UK jazz outfit Sons of Kemet. The description was borne out of The Smile's acerbic first single "You Will Never Work In Television Again," a 2:48 blast of ragged, pulsing raw energy familiar to ‘The Bends’ era Radiohead. Additional singles "The Smoke", "Skrting the Surface", "Pana-Vision" - which epically closed the series finale of hit show Peaky Blinders – and “Free In The Knowledge” each encapsulate different aspects and dynamics of the project. 

All are collected on The Smile’s double LP, A Light For Attracting Attention, produced by Nigel Godrich and featuring the London Contemporary Orchestra, and a full brass section of UK jazz players. 

The digital 13-track release arrives May 13th, with physical formats (2XLP, CD) following on June 17th. The limited edition yellow indie vinyl includes a gatefold with lyrics printed inside.
