Rumored Radiohead album and tracklist are ‘made up’

by Jonathan on March 9, 2010

Radiohead have confirmed that information in an email circulated by fans supposedly containing details about their next album is “made up”.

Yesterday (March 7) music website Tinymixtapes.com reported on an email, which seemed to originate from the band’s W.A.S.T.E. website, that when decoded revealed that the band’s next album would be named ‘Tehrangeles’.

It was acknowledged on the website that the information had not been confirmed by the band, and that it should be treated with suspicion. The email also revealed a supposed 11-song tracklisting. However, a spokesperson for the band has now confirmed that the information is false.

“Most of it is made up and there is no album or album title,” Radiohead’s spokesperson told NME.COM.

The false tracklisting contained some genuine Radiohead songs including ‘The Daily Mail’, ‘Give Up The Ghost’ and ‘Supercollider’.

Frontman Thom Yorke played ‘The Daily Mail’, ‘Give Up The Ghost and another new song, ‘Lotus Flower’, at a solo gig in Cambridge recently.

Radiohead picked up work on their new album in January, with guitarist Ed O’Brien telling fans, “I am so genuinely excited about what we’re doing, but for obvious reasons I can’t divulge anything more. Anyway, we all love surprises don’t we?”

    I was really exited about this, I really was thinking that with a new album the band wouldn’t split up, but now I’m not so sure… and the fake track list sucked…

  • shlomer

    lol, thank god.

  • Vgguru39

    NO SURPRISES! :(

  • steller

    yeah, that was such a disappointing track list

  • Arash

    The name of the album is so exsiting.i guess the art work of the album will be a Picture of Ahmadinejad.

    Tehrangeles is a nickname for Westwood (where UCLA is) because of the huge Persian population living there. Somehow I doubt Radiohead would decide to refer to Westwood for an album (unless they just really like the sound of the nickname).

    @ P N T R S -
    did you not comprehend the article? Did you just read the title? What makes you think they are going to split up –> they are working on a new album, just that the “information” being thrown out there, is rubbish. Fake made up rumors.

    I can’t wait for the new album! Without Radiohead I don’t what my mind would be like. so thank you Thom, Colin, Jonny, Ed, and Phil. You are all amazing musicians on your own but somehow manage to play together so collectively. It’s beyond music.
