Radiohead hint that album release is imminent with launch of new company

The band have set up a new company called Dawn Chorus ahead of a potential LP release

Radiohead look set to drop their new album any day now after it emerged that the band have set up a new company ahead of a forthcoming release.

Eagle-eyed fans recently discovered that Thom Yorke and co established a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP in October 2015 (see details here), what looks to be a holding company surrounding their LP release.

It has also been noted that the group set up similar companies ahead of their last two albums. In July 2007, they founded Xurbia Xendless Ltd in advance of ‘In Rainbows’, released in October 2007, while in December 2010 they formed Ticker Tape Ltd ahead of ‘The King of Limbs’ in February 2011.

Consequence Of Sound note that ‘Dawn Chorus’ was mentioned by Yorke in a 2009 interview as a song that he was working on. It is also the title of a 2002 Boards Of Canada track.

Representatives of Radiohead have not responded to NME‘s request for comment.

Radiohead recently revealed that they were asked to write the theme tune for 2015 James Bond film Spectre, subsequently giving away the track for free after it wasn’t used. Listen below.

It is unconfirmed as to whether Radiohead’s ‘Spectre’ will play any part in the band’s forthcoming ninth album.

Speaking previously, guitarist Jonny Greenwood confirmed that “lots has been recorded” for the album and that Radiohead hoped to tour the record in 2016.
