From the L.A. Times:

“Radiohead’s Thom Yorke hasn’t emerged as a sex symbol yet, but he’ll be naked in his next video appearance, bound by heavy ropes to the likewise undressed Isabel Monteiro, singer for the English Band Drugstore. The video is for ‘El President,’ a Yorke-Monteiro duet that will be the first single from Drugstroe’s upcoming album…”

Radiohead has dropped to number 53 in the Billboard 200.

OK Computer Radiohead Thom Yorke tour

News for March 7, 1998

The collaboration single with Drugstore and Thom will be released on April 20. The track, entitled El Presidente, was recorded in 1996 but is now being released due to legal problems.

A video compilation containing seven singles will be released on April 27 in the UK. It will include videos for Paranoid Android, Street Spirit, No Surprises, Just, High & Dry (US version), Karma Police, and Fake Plastic Trees.

There has been a second date added in New York CIty on March 18. The people of Detroit are petitioning to have radiohead come and play there on their upcoming US tour.

For the tour in America, Radiohead will be releasing a new EP called ‘Airbag: How’s My Driving?’, (referred to by Stanley as the ‘we’re running out of ideas’ EP). No other details at the moment, but lets hope it has a few new tracks – as the band have said that they will be playing new material on the forthcoming tour (Motion Picture Soundtrack and True Love Waits at least).

The DJ Shadow / Thom collaboration, Rabbit in Your Headlights, will be released this summer.
