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.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
