And Glastonbury's confirmed too...
RADIOHEAD‘s new album will be released on June 9.
The record, the group’s sixth, has been given working titles ‘2+2=5’ and ‘Are You Listening’. The group have recently been back in LA with producer Nigel Godrich, putting the final touches to the record.
In the UK, the record will be released on June 9. A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM a single had not yet been decided, although it is rumoured to precede it on May 16.
The release would coincide with their previously announced summer festival dates, which will include a headline slot at Glastonbury on June 28.
Speaking recently, O’Brien revealed that the atmosphere in the band is “fucking brilliant” compared to the frosty recording sessions for their last two albums ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac, and that the new songs contain “space and sunshine and energy”.
He commented: “You know that time when bands begin to swagger, like when the Stones got in a groove from ’68 to ’73? In the last two years, I think we’ve done that. To me, this record feels like the culmination of the best bits of ‘The Bends’, ‘OK Computer’, ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’.
Drummer Phil Selway added: “I don’t think we’ve ever felt so self assured in the studio. This time no shit hit the fan. And Thom’s voice has been incredible. That’s the stand out element for me. He’s reminded us that he’s in a league of his own.”
