Radiohead: Making another album would ‘kill us’

Thom Yorke says In Rainbows may be their last full length release

Trending Now

Radiohead say that it may be some time before they are ready to make a follow up to 2007’s In Rainbows, if indeed they ever make another full length album again.

Thom Yorke, speaking to US publication The Believer, says that they may just release one-off songs instead as making albums is hard: “None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again. Not straight off.”

The band had a “fixed idea about where we were going” with ‘In Rainbows’, but concede saying: “we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us.”

Last week (August 5), Radiohead released a new track in honour of WW1 veteran Harry Patch who died in July.

Money from downloads of “Harry Patch (In Memory Of)” will go to the British Legion.
