Radiohead will launch an American tour this summer, possibly including some theater dates, to road-test tracks from the group's in-progress seventh album. According to guitarist Ed O'Brien, the new disc – which doesn't have a release date yet – won't be recorded with longtime producer Nigel Godrich (who recently worked with Paul McCartney on the acclaimed Chaos and Creation in the Backyard). "We've been talking to [producer] Mark 'Spike' Stent, who has worked with Madonna and Björk, and hopefully in February we'll reconvene with him," O'Brien told BBC radio. The group — which has been demo-ing songs in its Oxford, England, studio since early last year and isn't currently signed to a label – hopes to release some new songs on the internet prior to the tour.
