Bassist Colin Greenwood anticipates a return to "song-based" music...
RADIOHEAD bassist COLIN GREENWOOD has promised a return to “song-based music” when the band work on the follow-up to ‘AMNESIAC’.
Radiohead‘s latest two albums ‘Amnesiac’ and ‘Kid A’ were recorded during the same sessions, in the latter part of 1999 and up to ‘Kid A”s release in October 2000.
Now, speaking to US website www.wallofsound.go.com, Greenwood revealed that the band have “talked about doing a guitar album next”.
He said: “The reason we did these two records is to show that anything is possible rather than everything is expected; the last thing we wanted to do was go into the studio and make another version of ‘OK Computer’.
“My best guess for the next album is a combination of ‘Amnesiac’ with more guitar music. But the most important thing is, it’s song-based music rather than sort of instrumental, non-lyric based music. We try not to insult or bore the intelligence of our audience, because we’re aware their tastes are moving on as well as ours with music, and it’s exciting to be part of that.”
This week’s NME features an exclusive interview with
Radiohead singer Thom Yorke about the making of ‘Amnesiac’. In it, the frontman claims to “miss guitars”.
