Thom Yorke has said that he is sick of releasing music in different ways, during a discussion with Radio 1’s Benji B.
Yorke is set to co-host with Benji B on his Radio 1 show tomorrow morning (Sept 7) at 1am. In a preview snippet, Yorke discusses the way in which he has released his past albums.
Benji B first brings up the release of ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’, commenting that Yorke released it “differently”, to which Yorke replies, “Again. Whatever. Enough of that now. Totally had enough of it.” The album was released as a BitTorrent Bundle featuring 8 tracks and a music video that was able to be purchased on vinyl or downloaded as a BitTorrent bundle.
He continued, “just put it out man, no more fuss. I’m getting too old for that bit. It takes away from things a bit, it’s frustrating.” Benji B then asks what part he finds frustrating, with Yorke adding, “the energy of trying to figure out how to do it differently.”
Mark Pritchard and Thom Yorke recently shared a video for their collaborative track ‘Beautiful People’.
Yorke leant his vocals to the electronic track, which features on Pritchard’s latest LP ‘Under the Sun’. Although the two artists hadn’t formally collaborated until this song, Pritchard previously remixed Radiohead’s ‘Bloom’, taken from 2011’s ‘King of Limbs’. ‘Under the Sun’ was released in May via Warp Records.
