Thom Yorke first played this protest song about global warming during the December 4, 2015 Pathway to Paris climate change concert at Le Trianon in the French capital. Yorke performed two Moon Shaped Pool
tracks, "The Numbers" (then known as "Silent Spring") and "Desert Island Disk
," during his solo gig. As he played "Silent Spring," Yorke could be heard saying, "This is Jonny (Greenwood, guitar)'s bit, which I can't play."
