Radiohead Ready 'Thief'

New album follows 2001's 'Amnesiac'

March 24, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Radiohead's sixth album, Hail to the Thief, will be released on June 10th. The album will be the band's first since 2001's Amnesiac.

Radiohead recorded the fourteen-track Hail in Oxfordshire, England, and Los Angeles. They produced the album with Nigel Godrich, a Radiohead collaborator since 1995's The Bends. Hail follows Radiohead's most experimental albums, Amnesiac and 2000's Kid A. Both records found the band exploring more abstract soundscapes, after the success of 1997's lavishly produced guitar-rock album, OK Computer.

The band has lined up a seven-date tour of the U.K. and Ireland to launch in Dublin on May 17th. A June 28th appearance at the Glastonbury Festival is also on the docket, with a North American tour set for the late summer/early fall.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
