RADIOHEAD’S PLAN B!

'Kid A' isn't even out yet and the band are hard at work on the follow-up...

Radiohead are in the studio working on a new album, due for release in Spring 2001, just six months after their new, ‘KID A’ album is out, nme.com can reveal.

The album is believed to contain the more accessible, commercial material which the band have written and recorded over the last two years and will be promoted by a full-scale tour of the UK and Europe. Songs tipped to appear on the new album include ‘Knives Out’, ‘Egyptian Song’ and ‘Dollars And Cents’ which the band have played on recent live outings.

Unlike ‘Kid A’, which frontman Thom Yorke allegedly wanted to name ‘ENC’ to stand for ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’, the 2001 Radiohead album is expected to be accompanied by single releases and promotional duties.

‘Kid A’, is released on October 2 through Parlophone. Radiohead are set to begin a series of more UK live dates at the end of the month, calling at:

London Hackney Victoria Park (September 23-25) Glasgow Green (28-29) Warrington Victoria Park (October 1-3) Dublin Punchestown Racecourse (6-8)
