Watch Radiohead’s Philip Selway Perform with the Dap-Kings On ‘The Tonight Show’
Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood aren't the only members of Radiohead keeping busy these days. Drummer Philip Selway can't seem to sit still when his main gig is inactive. He just released his second solo album, 'Weatherhouse,' and he made an appearance on 'The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon' to perform 'It Will End In Tears' with soul group the Dap-Kings. Check it out above.
'It Will End In Tears' is a sonic departure from what we'd expect from one-half of Radiohead's rhythm section. The song is a sleepy piano ballad defined by a distinctly British sort of melancholy. The inclusion of the legendary, if not underappreciated, Dap-Kings gives the song just the right amount of emotional gravity.
Selway's solo album hit shelves just a few days ago. He will do a short European tour in February 2015. We're guessing -- hoping, really -- the reason he's not touring now is that he and the other fellows in Radiohead are holed away somewhere working on their next album. In the meantime, here's the video for another song from 'Weatherhouse,' 'Coming Up for Air':
