New Radiohead Album Out “Sometime This Year”

Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien recently appeared on the BBC radio program Adam Buxton’s Big Mixtape and, lucky for us all, he decided to drop some details on the likely release date of the band’s eighth studio LP. “Ideally, it’d be great if it came out sometime this year. It’s got to,” O’Brien said, before adding, “We’re at the studio at the moment… we’re in the heart of the record, the finishing line… it’s in touching distance.” According to O’Brien, the record will likely be completed in “a matter of weeks.” Are you feverish with anticipation? Are your palms sweaty? Are you shaking? Do you need your Radiohead fix? Full interview after the break.

Judging from O’Brien’s enthusiasm for the band’s new material—”It’s genuinely exciting. It’s very different from what we did last time…It’s so good to be making music with the band that you feel is still as good as it’s ever been”—we may be in for another masterpiece.
