Thom Yorke will be releasing a solo album in 2019
October 25, 2018
Thom Yorke has announced that his solo LP will be out sometime in 2019. Tomorrow he will be releasing his first motion picture soundtrack for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspira. Listen to one of the singles below.
Thom was interviewed by Spanish outlet El Mundo and said that he is currently trying to finish an album with Nigel Goodrich (Radiohead producer). Earlier this year Yorke was on a solo tour in Europe and has debuted various songs at the shows. The new album will be the follow up to his 2014 record, “Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes”.
Thom said the following about the album, “It’s very electronic, but it’s different from what I’ve done until now. The method has been the opposite of depending upon the computer. It’s a strange process in which we construct a song in the studio, break it apart, we reconstruct it with a live mix and it turns out completely differently, and that’s when we record. We have improvised many sounds and effects. It has been a very strange way of making a record, which is very exciting.” He also mentioned that the album will be rather political, “I didn’t have the wish to make politically charged music, but everything I do goes that way anyways”.
Thom will be embarking on a North American tour at the end of November, check out all the dates here.
