Yorke adds to Radiohead speculation

Radiohead frontman Tom Yorke has provoked speculation by posting a picture of a white vinyl album.

While he hasn’t offered any details, the label appears reminiscent of the band’s artwork – and they’d previously said work would commence on their ninth album this month.

He posted the image via his Tumblr and Twitter accounts, and it was retweeted by band producer Nigel Godrich, who’s also a member of Yorke’s side-project Atoms For Peace.

Earlier this month drummer Richard Selway said that, although he didn’t know how the follow-up to 2011’s King Of Limbs might sound, the band had plenty left to say.

He reported: “We’ve decided that now feels right to start making music. We’ll see how it goes. There’s always that sense that our best record is still to come – there’s a lot of creativity we can do together.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
