Radiohead say session recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Records ‘not worth waiting for’

Band recorded music at White's Nashville studio in 2012

Radiohead have explained why their 2012 recording session at Jack White‘s Third Man Records has never been released.

In 2012, White confirmed that the band had recorded at his Nashville studio but stated that he had not personally worked with them on the music.

Now, four years on, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has spoken to BBC Radio 6 Music‘s Matt Everitt about why the Third Man session hasn’t seen the light of day, saying: “I don’t know. It was alright. It was OK. I can’t really remember.”


Of the session itself, O’Brien added: “It was really fun. Jack was so hospitable, him and his engineer – he records everything on 8-track. Listen, it’s not worth waiting for. If anything was amazing, you can be sure – we’d try and put it out.”
