Jack White has confirmed that Radiohead have been recording new material at Third Man Records.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, the Blunderbuss singer revealed that the Oxford band had been working in the studio owned by his record label – but also insisted that he hadn’t been involved in the recording sessions.
Last month (June 9), Thom Yorke dropped a mysterious hint from the stage during the band’s set at the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival in Tennessee, America suggesting that he and White had some exciting plans in the pipeline.
His comments sparked rumours that Radiohead and White would be working together on a new project, but the former White Stripes man said: “I don’t know how much to tell about it except I didn’t play with them or produce.”
However, he then added: But they came in and recorded at Third Man. I don’t know what else to be said about that, so that’s all I can probably say. Radiohead will tour the UK in the autumn, playing their first UK dates in over three years. The band first play a show at Manchester Arena on October 6 before playing two shows at London’s O2 Arena on October 8 and 9. They will then undertake a full European tour. Caribou will provide support on all dates.
Last month, they were forced to reschedule seven shows following an incident in which a stage collapsed in Toronto, which killed crew member Scott Johnson and injured three others. The gigs, which were due to take place in Italy, Germany and Switzerland, have all been moved to late September.
