Radiohead have reportedly shot a new music video in Los Angeles with There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson.
The band are expected to release their ninth album shortly, having recently announced a UK tour alongside a series of summer festival dates. The upcoming LP will be the follow-up to 2011’s ‘The King of Limbs’.
Wilder-Taylor explains: “Oh, this happened, I forgot to tell you! So, I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door… there’s a guy with a clipboard. I come to the door with a scowl on my face and the guy says, ‘Hey, we’re in the neighbourhood, we’re going to be shooting a music video.’ So now, I’m thinking you’re basically telling me – what happens a lot in my neighbourhood, because it’s a very typical suburban looking neighbourhood – I’m gonna be inconvenienced.”
“Then the guy goes – ‘it’s Radiohead!’ I can’t tell you anything about it. I’m guessing that’s the non-disclosure part. Between us girls, Radiohead – I don’t give a shit, I don’t get it. I’ve heard one song I don’t care about – ‘Creep’. Yeah, you’re a creep and a loser and you’re putting me to sleep.”
She continues: “Here’s the cool part. Then the next day, the guy goes, I wanna bring the director by your house… this guy comes in, says ‘Hey, this is the director, Paul’… really normal looking guy. Then I say, ‘Hey, you look kind of familiar… Have we met?’ Do you make anything apart from music videos?… I was like, ‘Oh shit!’”
A press representative for Radiohead have offered no comment on the reports.
Anderson has previously worked with the band’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood on the soundtracks for his films There Will Be Blood, The Master and Inherent Vice.
The band’s long-time visual collaborator Stanley Donwood recently confirmed that he has heard the band’s new album, although it is not yet finished, describing the LP as “a work of art”.
