it is a "solo" project, it is not a radiohead side project, just to re-clarify......

where does this say anything about it being a radiohead side project?.....

We received this message from W.A.S.T.E. tonight. It confirms the rumors that Thom has made an album:

this is just a note to say that something has been kicking around in the background that i have not told you about.
its called The Eraser.
nigel produced & arranged it .
i wrote and played it.
the elements have been kicking round now for a few years and needed to be finished & i have been itching to do something like this for ages.
it was fun and quick to do.
inevitably it is more beats & electronics.
but its songs.
stanley did the cover.
yes its a record!
no its not a radiohead record.
as you know the band are now touring and writing new stuff and getting to a good space so i want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah...
this was all done with their blessing. and i don't wanna hear that word solo. doesnt sound right.
ok then thats that.

i think its out in july and im pretty certain XL are going to put it out.

love thom

yes, fuck yess....

And all of the bandmembers were incredibly supportive and participated on it. Nigel is the man, it's going to be Bjork style beats with Thom vocalizing.

this sounds as if it may have the makings of one of the finest electronic albums of our time. a "beats and electronic" infused album from mr. thom yorke? goodness. maybe a fall solo tour for thom?

if you're interested in a more pensive side of yorke accompanying bjork, listen to "i've seen it all" off the "dancer in the dark" soundtrack. shit, see the film, too.
