Despite all the speculations from Radiohead fans, the band’s recently released album The King Of Limbs, will not get a sequel, Ed O’Brien said.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music last night guitarist Ed O’Brien ruled out more releases from the band. At least, not from The King Of Limbs sessions. When discussing the two new tracks that will be out on Record Store Day, Ed O’Brien said: “The Butcher is from the King Of Limbs sessions. Supercollider was recorded during that period and finished off after the album came out”. Ed added: “It’s just the way the album is sequenced best” and that “40, 41 minutes is the optimum time we feel for a record”
“There are [other] songs that we have started, that we never finished, but there’s not like seven or eight finished songs waiting in the wings to be released now, or in the autumn, or something. When we start a new record, we tend to start afresh. It’s kind of an evolutionary thing – only the fittest survive.”
