We had a little break from Radiohead news for a while, but I've got a feeling that frequent updates are on the way. Thom Yorke has been chatting up their new album, which he claims is scarier than OK Computer. Will the new tunes have us shaking in our little boots? He seems to think so.
The good folks over at NME were granted an interview with Yorke, during which he discussed the progress made on the new album. Rather following in the footsteps of the political topics found on Hail To The Thief, the new material will be much more about daily lives. "It's about that anonymous fear thing, sitting in traffic, thinking, I'm sure I'm supposed to be doing something else. Interestingly enough it's similar to OK Computer in a way. It's much more terrifying. But OK Computer was terrifying too - some of the lyrics were," said Yorke.
Yorke has also been keeping us up to date with the progress made on their time in the studio with producer Mike "Spike" Stent on his diary, which is viewable at radiohead.com. A bit of optimism was posted recently as he said: "Listening back to things we are doing and looking through the lyrics today and stuff it feels like we are finally getting somewhere. There are lots of songs. Too many to get together straight away. So we will be furiously rehearsing and writing as we go."
New tunes we might get to hear may include "Nude", "House Of Cards" and "15 Step." Hopefully more updates will be posted soon.
