Radiohead’s New Album Update

So, here’s another update on Radiohead’s new album. There are various rumours floating around on the location and the stages of recording the eighth studio album.

We’re surely expecting the new album this year, since Ed O’Brien revealed that the band are recording the album this Winter. In January Thom Yorke added on BBC Radio (in January): “Radiohead is still doing stuff. In fact, we’re starting another session for a month in two days. My biggest trouble at the moment is trying to keep up, but I prefer it that way.”

Los Angeles Times writer Jia-Rui Cook posted on his personal blog ‘Postmark Here‘ that Radiohead and Nigel Godrich set up a studio in the Hollywood Hills for a three-week session, where he attended the wrap party on January 30th. Here’s the (now deleted) post:

Bryan helped transform a house in the Hollywood Hills into a recording studio and spent the last three weeks there recording Radiohead with Nigel Godrich. On Saturday, we waded through a driveway full of Priuses and Minis to get to the wrap party. I was giddy seeing Beck, Selma Hayek and Danger Mouse chatting around the same pool where Dean Martin and the Rat Pack used to hang out. I marveled at the hair on one rock star that resembled one of those fuzzy boom mic covers. How exactly did he describe what he wanted to his hairdresser? I guess it was just proof rock stars can get away with stuff regular folks can’t. Thom Yorke periodically toyed with the iPhone that controlled the speakers. Usually he skipped forward to a Rolling Stones song. The band wanted to record in L.A. to get away from the dismal English winter. Nigel said they were probably lolling about too much in the sunshine when they first arrived. When it started pouring down, they realized someone up there was telling them to get on with it. If their last album was “In Rainbows,” I guess they could call this one “In Rainstorms.”

However, this does not mean the new album is finished. This could be the wrap party for just this session and more recording sessions are coming up. Radiohead’s publicist could not confirm or deny the wrap party to Entertainment Weekly, but answered ‘FALSE’ to the question if Radiohead’s new album is indeed finished. To be continued obviously…

  • A wrap party for a three week session?

    I think this megastardom lark has gone to their radioheads a bit lately.

  • In Rainstorms… sounds good =D

  • I hope it is finished and comes out soon. IT has been too long…

  • “I hope it is finished and comes out soon. IT has been too long…”

    I don’t think it’s been too long at all… I mean, obviously I’d like it sooner than later, but it took how many years between HTTT and IR, and you’re saying after a little more than a year it’s been too long? Don’t rush them friend, don’t rush them…

  • Oh dear, celeb pool parties in Hollywood… I’m worried.

  • My guess is it was a wrap party for recording sessions, and they’ve just got to mix and master it.

    BUT WHO KNOWS.

  • I don’t like this ‘American’ influence.

  • What a hell!!

    Why RH is in HW ??
    Commercial influence !!!

  • Great news!!!!Can’t wait to listen to it!Radiohead the BEST!!!

  • im just wondering about relocating to LA to record? talk about losing your mojo!

  • @ ALEX
    It’s been over 2 years since in rainbows, not 1 yr

  • I think that party would be badass, with beck and dangermouse there.

    P.S. : there are SOME cool people in L.A., let’s not stereotype now…

  • You know, I’ve lived in LA for a while now, and have made two conclusions about people who hate on it. They:
    a. Have never been here, and mindlessly swallow stereotypes and caricatures
    or
    b. Hate where they live, and so assume the worst about any place.

    That being said, Radiohead have done sessions here before. Lots of bands record in LA, it’s a nice environment, and the zoning laws allow for commerical home studios, which would make for (I imagine) a comfortable place for exploring artistic eccentricities. But whatever. Maybe the sun’s gone to my (radio)head.

  • [...] Radiohead’s New Album Update [...]

  • Sounds a lot like the HTTT sessions, but at least they made their own space instead of a cold studio.
    With the band declaring official Twitters it seems they are getting ready for announcements. Oh wait, could this be Thom’s solo band recording?

  • Who’s Bryan again?

  • [...] Radiohead va a publicar el sucesor de In Rainbows este 2010? Hace ya un buen tiempo se rumoreaba que el nuevo material de los ingleses podría ver la luz este año, pero por lo general estos dichos o bien correspondían a buenos deseos basados en conjeturas o [...]
