The Red Eye Flight


Posted in radiohead by huckd on October 7, 2009

Thom-Yorke-and-Flea-play--001Thom Yorke debuted his new solo band (which features Red Hot Chili Pepper’s bassist Flea) in Los Angeles this past weekend at the Orpheum (plus a rehearsal at the Echoplex nightclub), performing his 2006 solo album “The Eraser,” in its entirety, plus 7 new songs. One of those new songs–“Lotus Flower”–has already moved into Radiohead material territory. Now word has it that Yorke and crew will be reconvening at their Oxfordshire studio this winter to record sessions for a new Radiohead album. Guitarist Ed O’Brien told NME that the band would “definitely” have a record ready for release by next year. Despite their digital fascination, O’Brien insisted that the new record would be pressed to vinyl and CD, regardless if it came out digitally-ala “In Rainbows.”

Radiohead recently released a free download of the one-off track, “These are My Twisted Words,” which probably won’t appear on the album–according to O’Brien.
