The dynamic duo of Aurelien and Mona, maintainers of the French Radiohead fanclub ne pas a.v.a.l.e.r., recently talked to Nigel Godrich (Radiohead’s producer) at the Arles, France show last week. He said that the new album will be released at the beginning of October, but there is still no exact date set. He was really excited to see what the new songs will be like in front of an audience, and was seen dancing along with the concert in the sound booth. He couldn’t reveal the title of the album, but said it “will all make sense”.

Bjork Slots Soundtrack Date, Chat
“Selmasongs,” Bjork’s soundtrack to “Dancer In The Dark,” the award-winning film in which she also stars, is now set for release on September 19.
Songs from the album will be culled entirely from music and dialogue in the film and, according to Bjork’s spokesperson at Elektra Records, “will be more like a Broadway cast recording than a soundtrack.”
“I’ve Scene It All,” a duet between Bjork and Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, also will be included on the soundtrack.
Last month, Bjork earned Best Actress honors at the Cannes Film Festival for her portrayal of “Selma,” a Czech immigrant living in the United States who has a hereditary disease which causes blindness. The musical, which was helmed by “Breaking The Waves” director Lars Von Trier, also won the festival’s Palme D’Or for best film.
“Dancer In The Dark” is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters in the fall.
Bjork will discuss the soundtrack and other topics during a live Web chat on the ARTISTdirect network (www.artistdirect.com) on Thursday at 4 p.m. (ET).
