Published Apr 14, 2016Aside from the band's collaborators talking about how great it is, we haven't heard much else about Radiohead's upcoming new album. Today, however, an important tidbit has emerged — it will reportedly be out in the next two months.
In a talk at London's Wanstead Pub, Radiohead manager Brian Message dropped the bombshell that the release will arrive in June. He didn't give a specific date, but telling us the month is better than nothing.
He also added that the album "will be like nothing you've ever heard." That could really mean just about anything at this point.
Radiohead themselves have yet to deliver any other info about their latest album, so don't be alarmed if they pull a Radiohead and drop it as a surprise release.
Thanks to Pitchfork for the tip.

UPDATE (4/15, 12:00 p.m.): It turns out that this Radiohead information was inaccurate — the band have since released a statement clarifying that Brian Message is not their manager. Read the statement from their camp below:
At an industry event in London last night Brian Message was asked about new Radiohead music. Quotes attributed to him and taken from his talk have subsequently appeared, describing him as Radiohead's manager. Brian Message is not Radiohead's manager - he is a partner in Courtyard Management but plays no operational role, and therefore any quotes from last night's event, or any supposition arising from them, should not be attributed to Radiohead's management or be seen as official quotes on behalf of the group. Radiohead are managed by Chris Hufford and Bryce Edge at Courtyard Management.
