Background

"The Radiance" is the second track on A Thousand Suns, an interlude between the intro track "The Requiem" and "Burning In The Skies". The song features a sample of Robert J. Oppenheimer's famous speech. "Our whole band watched the clip on YouTube as research. You can really feel the excitement in him, he has created something amazing, but which can cause the world to be destroyed. He does not know how to get into it. It's pretty screwed," said Phoenix.[1] It transitions directly out of "The Requiem" and transitions into "Burning In The Skies" all the same. The song is fairly simple, comprising mostly of an electronic beat, the Oppenheimer speech, and the synth of "Burning In The Skies", concluding with a ambient beat transitioning into the next song.

Live

"The Radiance" has been played in its studio form only one time, at the New York City A Thousand Suns release show. Every other performance of the song has had the speech from Oppenheimer replaced by the speech by Mario Savio, which was featured in "Wretches And Kings". This version of the song was played at every show that featured "The Requiem", as "The Radiance" transitions right out of that song. The speech from "The Radiance" was also usually played live, but as an extended outro to "Numb", which also featured Mike singing the chorus of "The Catalyst" through a vocoder.

While not being played on the Living Things cycle in any form, the song made a small appearance starting with the second Brazilian show on The Hunting Party cycle, with the speech being played over the piano outro on the new live version of "Castle Of Glass".
