New Radiohead album may be released this year
In what may be the best news of the year, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien has said Radiohead’s new album may be released in 2010.
Consequence of Sound reports that O’Brien appeared on the BBC radio show Adam Buxton’s Big Mixtape and revealed the information and the band’s status in the recording studio.
“Ideally, it’d be great if it came out sometime this year. It’s got to. I hope so,” said O’Brien. “We’re at the studio at the moment… we’re in the heart of the record.” He added that “the finishing line… it’s in touching distance” and that the record should be finished in “a matter of weeks.”
O’Brien pointed out that he feels this album “is the best record we ever made. It really is genuinely exciting. It’s very different from what we did last time.”
I am ass over tea kettle with the release of this news. I know that the RiO!B just released the best 7 albums of 2010 so far list but if RH releases this LP this year, you can be pretty sure what album will take the number one spot in December. You can call me biased all you want but you can’t call me a fair weather fan of these guys. In my eyes they’re the best. Period.
