Radiohead Reveal New Album Details

New Radiohead album to be accompanied by singles, videos

January 4, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Just three months after the release of the Grammy nominated Kid A, information on Radiohead's upcoming fifth album has surfaced on the band's Web site. Like its predecessor, Amnesiac will be produced by Nigel Godrich, and is expected out in June.

In a recent interview on Australian radio station Triple J, guitarist Ed O'Brien compared the album to the band's 1995's The Bends. Several of the album's songs were recorded during the Kid A sessions. And while a full track listing has not been confirmed, a song titled "Po Pad" will be the album's first song. "Pyramid Song (a.k.a. Egyptian Song)" and "Living in a Glass House," two songs that the band had played earlier this year, will also be included on the album. The latter features a special guest appearance by British jazz writer and musician Humphrey Lyttleton. Other tracks listed by the band as Amnesiac possibilities include: "Knives Out," "You and Whose Army?", "Dollars and Cents" and "I Might Be Wrong," all of which have been played live in recent performances.

While the band's promotional efforts for Kid A remained low key, Thom Yorke claims that the band's approach will change entirely with the release of Amnesiac. "We are definitely having singles, videos, glossy magazine celebrity photo-shoots, children's television appearances, film premier appearances, dance routines and many interesting interviews about my tortured existence," he wrote in a Web post.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
