Radiohead rule out releasing ‘The Kings Of Limbs’ sequel

Ed O'Brien says there's no new album in the offing

Radiohead have said that there will be no sequel to the ‘The Kings Of Limbs’.

Speaking on BBC 6 Music, guitarist Ed O’Brien said that rumours that the band have a sequel ready to release are incorrect.

Responding to a question about whether the release of new tracks ‘Supercollider’ and ‘The Butcher’ on limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day indicated the band had another album on the way, O’Brien said it did not.

He said: “‘The Butcher’ is from ‘The King Of Limbs’ sessions. ‘Supercollider’ was recorded during that period and finished off after the album came out.”

He added: “There are songs that we have started, that we never finished, but there’s not like seven or eight finished songs waiting in the wings to be released now, or in the autumn.”

There had been speculation that the presence of only eight tracks on ‘The King Of Limbs’ suggested there would be another album, but O’Brien said that “it’s just the way the album is sequenced best” and that “40, 41 minutes is the optimum time we feel for a record”.
