Radiohead are more likely to release an EP, or even several EPs, before recording another full-length album. With the release of their sixth studio disc, Hail To The Thief, the band have fulfilled their contract with their record label, and now singer Thom Yorke says they’re looking forward to not having to make another album right away. He told Billboard.com, “It’s always been album, album, album…with things like iTunes and people splitting up tracks, I kind of think that’s good. I listen to music on random all the time.”
Yorke stressed the need for Radiohead to “reinvent” their sound again on their next project, saying that it “needs to be more conducive to moving on musically, because that’s kind of what we’ve always done. We feel that after Hail To The Thief, we want to definitely disappear into a black hole of the unknown, rather than carrying on where we left off.”
The band just wrapped up a North American tour and will resume live performances on November 10 in Germany. A new single, “2
2=5,” featuring remixes, a demo recording, and a video, will be released overseas on the same date. The band is also planning Australian and Japanese tours for April.
