Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien has explained why the band’s 2012 recording session at Jack White‘s Third Man Records has never been released.

In 2012, White confirmed that the band had recorded at his Nashville studio but stated that he had not personally worked with them on the music.

Speaking on BBC Radio 6 Music‘s programme, The First Time With, O’Brien told presenter Matt Everitt about why the Third Man session hasn’t seen the light of day, saying: “I don’t know. It was alright. It was OK. I can’t really remember. It was really fun. Jack was so hospitable, him and his engineer—he records everything on 8-track. Listen, it’s not worth waiting for. If anything was amazing, you can be sure—we’d try and put it out.”
