The Smile have shared a new single called Friend of a Friend.

Featuring strings from the London Contemporary Orchestra, and saxophone by Robert Stillman, the melancholic, piano-led track marks the third preview of the trio's sophomore album, 'Wall Of Eyes'.

The song's accompanying Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video is set to premiere alongside a number of special album playback and film screening events at independent cinemas worldwide between January 18 and 25. Tickets for the events, which are billed as Wall Of Eyes, On Film, will be on sale from 10am on Thursday (January 11). Head here for further details.

The band, comprising Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, and Sons of Kemet's Tom Skinner, previously teased the record with the song Bending Hectic and its title track. It's due out through XL Recordings on January 26, following up their 2022 debut 'A Light For Attracting Attention'.

The Smile will support the release with a UK and European tour in March, which includes a show at London's Alexandra Palace. Tickets are on sale now.

They've also confirmed a second run of European dates for June and August, with tickets on general sale on Friday (January 12). James Holden will feature as support on all 2024 headline dates.
