Radiohead frontman announces solo album

According to well-respected Radiohead fansite Thom Yorke is to release a solo album called “The Eraser”. The website (which is widely known as the official unnofficial Radiohead site) received an email from Radioheads management saying:

“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. link
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


The tracklisting should be as follows: 01 the eraser, 02 analyse, 03 the clock, 04 black swan, 05 skip divided, 06 atoms for peace, 07 and it rained all night, 08 harrowdown hill, 09 cymbal rush

At the end of the tour Radiohead will resume work on their new album, due for release next year.”
