Radiohead greatest hits on the way?

Former record label may delve into the band's vaults again

Radiohead‘s former record label EMI are planning to release a greatest hits compilation by the band, according to some online reports.

It is believed the collection could be issued to coincide with the band’s summer tour.

This would not be the first time EMI have released Radiohead material since the band parted ways with the label – in 2007 EMI issued a box set that spanned all six albums the band recorded for them.

Guitarist Ed O’Brien told the Canadian programme Radio Show: “They’re planning to do a Greatest Hits for April/May to coincide with our tour. That’s an interesting one. We won’t be doing any promotion for that, obviously.”

Drummer Phil Selway also spoke about the possibility of the release an interview with Analogue, stating: “It’s well within their rights to do it. So we’ll have to see.”
