Reports that the indie-angst king and queen are set to collaborate look likely...
According to a report on pitchforkmedia.com, Yorke will enter a recording studio with Harvey in Milton Keynes over the next few days, where he will record a vocal part for Harvey‘s new album, which is currently being put together with a provisional Autumn release scheduled on Island Records.
Both PJ Harvey and Radiohead‘s press offices have been unable to confirm the collaboration. A spokesperson for Thom Yorke told nme.com that the story didn’t come from an official source and was “not necessarily true”, while Harvey‘s spokesperson admitted to nme.com that the pair were friends, but could not confirm the pair would be working together.
Harvey is currently recording her fifth studio album, which is the follow-up to her 1998 record ‘Is This Desire?’. Harvey is working with long-time drummer Rob Ellis, and Mick Harvey from Nick Cave‘s Bad Seeds.
If Yorke does collaborate with Harvey, the news comes only days after it was revealed that he is also to duet with Bjork on a song to be included on the soundtrack of the new Lars von Trier directed film ‘Dancer In The Dark’. In the film, Bjork makes her first cinematic leading role.
