Published Oct 08, 2009Remember in August when Thom Yorke told The Believer that Radiohead were done making albums? Well, that might not be the case, after all.
To jog your memory, here's what Yorke said at the time:
"None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again. Not straight off... I mean, it's just become a real drag. It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we've all said that we can't possibly dive into that again. It'll kill us... I mean, obviously, there's still something great about the album. It's just, for us, right now, we need to get away from it a bit."
Well, in a new interview with NME [via TwentyFourBit], Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien has put to rest any fear that Radiohead might not make a full-length for quite some time.
"We were misquoted," said O'Brien in the interview, which is not yet online. "We will be making an album!"
O'Brien went on to say that Yorke may be "happy to see the CD format disappear" because they're "just a fucking nightmare," but the band will still release full-length albums and the diminutive singer's comments were taken out of context. Although, really, read Yorke's quote above again and the context is pretty clear.
"We all like vinyl," O'Brien added. "That's not going to go away. I still like CDs as well. I got the Speech Debelle CD the other day - I nearly downloaded it from iTunes, but I thought, 'No, I want the physical thing.'"
O'Brien also told NME that Radiohead will enter an Oxfordshire, England studio this winter to start work on their new album.
