NEW YORK: Experimental rock giants Radiohead are working on a new album â€“ or at least it would appear so from the cryptic messages of frontman Thom Yorke.
In what online fans widely interpreted to be a tease, Yorke has in recent days made a series of suggestive tweets including a link to an untitled picture of a white turntable in between his calls for the world to fight climate change.
In his most explicit message, Yorke said that he and Stanley â€“ presumably longtime friend Stanley Donwood, who has designed Radioheadâ€™s cover art â€“ were â€œgoing through 15 years of discarded words and pictures.â€
Yorke said that Radiohead has done â€œoverdubsâ€ in its studio but that the British rockers were in their â€œsecond day only.â€
The hints would confirm a statement earlier this year by Radiohead lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, who told the BBC that the band would start recording a new album in September.
The album would be Radioheadâ€™s first since 2011â€™s â€œThe King of Limbs,â€ an experimental work in both music and marketing with Radiohead selling it digitally from their website without a record label.
Radiohead quickly won a following with its 1993 debut album â€œPablo Honey,â€ a work of guitar-driven alternative rock that featured the song â€œCreep.â€ The band soon took a more original and electronic turn through its seminal 1997 album â€œOK Computer.â€ –AFP
