Thom Yorke has compared writing for Radiohead’s new album to that on ‘OK Computer’ – but has declared the lyrics will be even more terrifying!
The group are recording with new producer Mark ‘Spike’ Stent (who has worked with Keane, Madonna and Oasis in the past) and in a world exclusive interview, Yorke said that despite rumours that the follow-up to ‘Hail To The Thief’ will have a political feel, in fact the opposite is true.
He said: “It’s about that anonymous fear thing, sitting in traffic, thinking, ‘I’m sure I’m supposed to be doing something else’.
Interestingly enough it’s similar to ‘OK Computer’ in a way. It’s much more terrifying. But ‘OK Computer’ was terrifying too -some of the lyrics were.”
Up to 16 tracks are being considered for the band’s next album, with current favourites including ‘Nude’, ’15 Step’, ‘Arpeggi’ and ‘House Of Cards’. [from NME]
