News for September 14, 2000

by Jonathan on September 14, 2000

This may very well be the best news you hear all day

From Music365.co.uk:

RADIOHEAD are believed to be entering the studio before the end of the year to start recording their sixth album – just weeks after the release of their fourth LP ‘Kid A’ and several months ahead of their as-yet-untitled fifth effort.

Music365 has learned that recording for the album could start as after the band finish their UK and Ireland tour, which winds up in Dublin in October.

The band are already thought to have finished their fifth album, and will mix it in November. The album is expected to include several tracks that the band have played on their recent live shows in Europe, including ‘Knives Out’ and ‘Dollars And Cents’.

It is described as being a more traditional alternative guitar album than the more electronic ‘Kid A’. 

Music365 has learned that the band want to start recording another album as soon as possible – and with ‘Kid A’s successor rumored to be ready for release as early as next spring, this could mean Radiohead releasing three albums within 18 months. 

Radiohead are also expected to continue touring in small bursts next year, which may see them return to Europe as well as visiting the USA, Japan and Australasia. 

A spokesperson for Radiohead, however, could not confirm any studio time before the end of the year.

About the L.A. show

Many have asked about when tickets will go on-sale for the upcoming Radiohead show at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on October 20. Nothing is known yet so stay tuned. Once anything is known, it’ll be here.
