Jonny Greenwood performs in a scene from Radiohead's new video for the song "The Numbers."

The latest video from Radiohead is a field recording of Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke performing "The Numbers," from the band's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool. It's remarkable what they can do with two guitars and a drum machine; the duo basically strip away the song's original studio effects, percussion and piano.

Filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, who's worked with Greenwood on a number of film scores, directed the video. It's a relatively simple shoot, with Greenwood and Yorke performing against the Tarzana, Calif., landscape. Producer, engineer and longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich mixed the performance.
