Thom Yorke was the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon's stay-at-home version of The Tonight Show on Wednesday, debuting a new song called "Plasticine Figures." Singing from his basement with only a piano for accompaniment, Yorke delivered what was, even by his standards, a haunting performance: "Most malleable / Plasticine figures / Mould to suit your taste / Happy to serve / Happy to linger / While you make up your face."
