Yorke who released his solo album, Anima last year, will also perform at the Roskilde Festival which takes place June 27 to July 6 in Roskilde, Denmark. Bands set to perform at the festival include, Faith No More, alternative hip hop artist Tyler, The Creator, Taylor Swift, Anderson .Paak, Kacey Musgraves, Anna Meredith, Angel Olsen, Old Man Gloom, Young Thug, Cage The Elephant, Deftones, Mura Masa, and Cate Le Bon.
In an mxdwn.com article, Yorke’s recent album Anima is described as a celebration of what he does best. Anima is, at its core, an electronic album, in the gentlest of ways, with qualities that only Yorke can combine so effortlessly, and is a style that only he has developed so well. The album is driven by synthesisers and electronic rhythms, as well as Yorke’s tingling vocals.
