New Album News: Radiohead
Let the frenzy begin. The news has broken and Radiohead fans everywhere are rejoicing. In an interview with 6 Music, bassist, Colin Greenwood let it slip that a new album is in the works. The group put in some studio time last week with Nigel Godrich, who has produced every Radiohead album since OK Computer in '97, and has since been referred to as the sixth member of the band. "Nigel [has the] ability to make [everything] sound vaguely plausible," Greenwood said. "He can take anything, whether it is an old hi-fi unit or four or five people in a band, and he'll try and make it work one way or another. I totally love and respect him for that." While talking about the "noisy and chaotic" new album, Greenwood stated, "It’s at the stage where we’ve got the big Lego box out and we’ve tipped it out on the floor and we’re just looking at all the bits and thinking what’s next?" One thing's for sure. We can't wait to find out.
