Both of The King Of Limbs’ closing tracks, Give Up The Ghost and Separator, are songs that Thom Yorke has been performing solo live for the past year or so.
Give Up The Ghost is more of a traditional acoustic number than any of the tracks on the first half of the album, yet it still has a distinctly percussive focus. The song’s rhythm is built up around an acoustic guitar being strummed and hit percussively, and a slowly repeated sample of Yorke’s voice.
For an interesting perspective on how Give Up The Ghost is built, watch this video of Thom performing a stripped-down solo version about a year ago.
