Photos From Radiohead Recording Sessions Emerge


Earlier this year Radiohead drummer Phil Selway revealed the band was set to enter the recording studio in September to work on the follow-up to 2011’s King Of Limbs. Selway recently confirmed the plan was still in place and yesterday photos from the sessions emerged.

Composer/conductor/arranger Robert Zieger, who worked with the band on King Of Limbs, posted three photos showing what appears to be Radiohead’s sessions at AIR Studios in London on his Twitter account. The British rockers are usually extremely secretive about their sessions, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise the tweets were quickly deleted. However the photos went viral despite the deletions. One of the photos is above and the other two can be found below:

The photos show Radiohead members Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood and Ed O’Brien as well as producer Nigel Godrich. “Lovely session” was the only text accompanying the photos. Interestingly, we also see a large string orchestra.

In Selway’s chat with NME he revealed a few details about what to expect. “For so long we kind of played exclusively with each other and that takes you so far, so I suppose from album to album you try to push yourself beyond your comfort zone,” the drummer said hinting at others contributing to Radiohead LP #9. “We kind of change record to record, try and change the underlying approach to making music,” Selway added.
