Listen to Thom Yorke's second Sonos Radio mix


Thom Yorke has shared the second volume of his In The Absence Thereof playlist for Sonos Radio which you can listen to below.

Yorke’s collaboration with Sonos Radio began last month with his debut appearance on the platform last month, with the Radiohead frontman curating his own radio station on Sonos which is titled ‘In the Absence Thereof’.

The Radiohead man’s first mix for the station included the likes of Duke Ellington, James Blake, Little Simz, Tindersticks, Ben Vida and many more.
