After an Instagram tease this morning, Radiohead released a new music video for a song called “Daydreaming” moments ago. The video was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and features Thom Yorke wandering around, entering and exiting different environments through doors.

It was also announced that the still unnamed new album, their 9th, will be released on May 8th at 7 PM BST digitally.

Here is the music video for “Daydreaming”:

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

After “deleting their entire presence” off of the internet yesterday, Radiohead released two teaser video on their Instagram earlier today. This all led up to a full-length music video for a new song called “Burn the Witch”, directed by Chris Hopewell, who also directed the “There There” video back in the day.

Without further delay, here is the video for “Burn the Witch”:

Stanley Donwood posted some behind-the-scenes photos as well:

Happy 2013 (We’re not dead)

by Jonathan on January 16, 2013

GP 8/2000

Screen capture of Green Plastic from August, 2000. This is the actual size, designed for 640×480 screen resolutions. Crazy.

Hi everyone. As you can see, this site has not been updated since July of 2012 and you may have been wondering if it was ever going to be updated again. At this point in time, after 16 years (!) of running this site, I haven’t had the time or resources to give it the love it deserves.

The world has changed a lot since I first started this site. Back in 1997, there was no social networking, no Twitter or Facebook. The “fansite” was really the only way for fans to get the information they wanted about their favorite bands. Today, people can get push notifications and immediate aggregated updates on anything they want from all sorts of sources. This leaves a site like greenplastic.com a little less useful, especially when it’s not updated as frequently.

Green Plastic is not going anywhere and the site will remain online for a long time to come and I do hope to be able to return to posting regularly. In the meantime, you can visit our still active message board to interact with other fans.

I appreciate all the love and support over the years.

We’ll talk soon,

Jonathan

PS. Check out Thom’s Dazed and Confused mix!

Radiohead pays tribute to Scott Johnson

Radiohead returned to the stage last night for the first time since the tragic death of drum tech, Scott Johnson. If you’ll recall, Johnson was killed during a stage collapse last month in Toronto which forced the band to delay the tour.

The band did not disappoint last night at Les Arena in Nimes, France, starting off the set with “Lucky”, something they hadn’t done since 1998. Another huge highlight was the live premiere of “Treefingers”, the instrumental track from Kid A. Here’s a video:

For the third encore, Thom Yorke thanked the crew and dedicated “Reckoner” to Johnson, whose picture was displayed behind the band during the performance.

The full setlist is below. The band return to Les Arena tonight for their second show.

02 Bloom
03 Morning Mr. Magpie
04 15 Step
05 There There
06 Staircase

08 Separator

10 Pyramid Song
11 Nude
12 Identikit
13 Lotus Flower

15 Little By Little
16 Paranoid Android
