Published Feb 11, 2008To coincide with the band's North American tour this summer, EMI has announced it will cash in the rest of its Radiohead chips and release a "greatest hits" album. Radiohead fansite Ateaseweb.com reports that despite the band's disapproval, the label will go ahead and continue to make as much money as they can off the band, who left the label back in 2004 after fulfilling their contract.
Speaking exclusively to host George Stroumboulopoulos on a recent episode of The Strombo Show, guitarist Ed O'Brien announced, ""Theyre planning to do a Greatest Hits for April, May to coincide with our tour. Thats an interesting one. We wont be doing any promotion for that, obviously. Drummer Phil Selway also confirmed the forthcoming record in an interview with Analogue, adding, ""Its well within their rights to do it. [sigh]. So well have to see.
It is believed Radiohead will announce the dates for their full North American tour next week.
