The rock gods have spoken and brought us another new Radiohead song. 

Monday night in Dallas, during a stop on their current U.S. tour, the Oxford quintet debuted "Skirting on the Surface," and thankfully some fan was able to shake him/herself out of a blissful daze to film the damn thing. Thank you, YouTube user Skysaw73.

"Skirting on the Surface" follows a pair of new tracks, “Identikit” and  “Cut a Hole,” which frontman Thom Yorke and crew unveiled on the opening night of the trek in Miami. Unlike those, however, "Skirting on the Surface" sounds like a fully formed B-side from Radiohead's King of Limbs sessions. It has a ghostly groove that, like that album's "House of Cards," is weirdly among the sexiest things Radiohead has done. It's all floating synths, fat bass and Yorke's skyward vocals. Yet another gift from the heavens (er, Skysaw73 Dallas) for Radiohead fans. Check it out below.
