By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the post from Thom over at Dead Air Space where he mentioned the new album. The band have taken a break after recording the album and it appears that they have a CD with their progress. Does this mean that they are totally done recording? We believe yes.
radiohead starts up again having finally caught up on some sleep next week
i have a cd of what we;’ve been up to…
and you haven’t.
i must listen to it, after taking an ear break
that always makes me nervous
hope you’re well
Still no word on an official release date for this album. Expect information to start pouring out soon, which should mean more updates here. We believe that an announcement will be made soon.
I wouldn’t rely too heavily on this but it does make for some fun discussion. Also, did you see that EMI is listed as the label? Interesting….
Over at Dead Air Space, Thom’s latest post lets us know that it was an “eventful” week.
now that was a long and eventful week
and it ain over
rise and shine
its on again off again on again
watch me fall like dominoes
in pretty patterns
What made this week more eventful than others? Oh we love to look too deep in to things. It’s probably due to the LOST fever we have. Or maybe it’s because Radiohead did re-sign with EMI. Which they did. Or maybe not. Haha… 😉
First off, apologies for the lack of updates. There’s really no excuse other than personal and work lives became much more important over the last few months. 2007 should be better folks. It has to be better as this year marks 10 years of GP. Can you believe that? 10 years?! When I first started Green Plastic on my free AOL member page, I had no idea that it would of been a part of my life for this long. It’s gotten me jobs, it’s introduced me to new people, and it’s given me the opportunity to meet the band. For those that thought that I had given up on the site, fear not! While work and life have become more important to me, I will always have a place for this site. I mentioned in the last update that a redesign is in progress. That is still happening. I did tweak the older layout today as you may have noticed.
Okay, enough of that. Let me tell you what Radiohead has been doing since we last updated:
Most importantly, the band are back at work on the new album. Writing in the Dead Air Space blog last week, Thom mentioned that the band were “working on a version of 15step and rebuilding our studio in the wind.” He also suggests that if you live in the UK, that you visit http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/trident/.
Thom spoke in an interview recently saying that the new album is similar to OK Computer but “but much more terrifying.” The album should include songs like “Videotape” and “Bangers N Mash.” There’s still no date on the album release. Stay posted…
Thom Yorke’s Eraser is nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Alternative Music Album” category. He faces stiff competition from the Arctic Monkeys, The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The 49th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for February 11, 2007 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Thom is also nominated for the “British Male Solo” award at this year’s Brit Awards. James Morrison, Jarvis Cocker, Lemar and Paolo Nutini are all nominated too. The awards take place at London’s Earls Court Arena on February 14th.
There is plenty of other news, which we’ll post up soon. In the meantime, check out this video of an interview with Thom back in October:
(thanks to everyone that wrote in concerned about the status of the site. all is well)
