Radiohead to Release New Album This Winter (And it Will be on Vinyl)

This morning I was delighted to see the news on ateaseweb that Radiohead is to head into the studio again and begin recording their new album this winter. Because of my last, Radiohead-themed post, I’ve decided to keep the Radiohead-train-a-rollin.’

The possibility of a follow-up to Radiohead’s 2008 In Rainbows was very up in the air this past year as speculation grew surrounding a number of interviews with the band members. The band releasing the These Are My Twisted Words digital download this summer only added fuel to the fire. Well today the speculation can come to an end and we can expect a brand new Radiohead album as early as next year.

Here is the news as quoted on ateaseweb:

“There’s been a lot of speculation on Radiohead’s next album. Would it ever be recorded? Or would be just get digital tracks, EP’s or whatever made the press. Ed O’Brien confirmed that a new Radiohead album (yes, album) is in the making.

It was the interview in The Believer that kick-started a lot of rumours on Radiohead’s future. Thom Yorke told the magazine: “None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again.(…) But we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us.” The news hit the press worldwide.

Radiohead have spent this Summer in the studio, releasing tracks online like ‘Harry Patch (In Memory Of)’ and ‘These Are My Twisted Words’. This sort of seemed like they were serious about not releasing albums in the future. But guitarist Ed O’Brien has confirmed that the band is in fact interested in recording more albums and the follow-up to ‘In Rainbows’ is actually in the making.

Ed O’Brien told NME that with sessions planned this winter the band would “definitely” be releasing a full album physically next year.
“We were misquoted,” claimed O’Brien of Yorke’s comments, loudly adding, “WE WILL BE MAKING AN ALBUM!”

Ed also made it clear that the album would be released on both CD and vinyl formats.

“We love the artwork; that’s really important, the physicality,” he explained. “And we all like vinyl. That’s not going to go away. I still like CDs as well. I got the Speech Debelle CD the other day – I nearly downloaded it from iTunes but I thought, ‘No. I want the physical thing.”

I have left South Jersey for the weekend and will be heading into Portland, Maine today to check out a few record stores and grab a famous Lake Trout Stout. Check us out later for some record store reviews and pictures.
