It’s clear on Radiohead’s new album ‘Hail To The Thief’, singer Thom Yorke is relishing in his role. “I think he felt he got himself into some kind of cul-de-sac on ‘OK Computer’ because, you know, he was ‘Thom Yorke’ and he was being labelled on his plight, his suffering or whatever,” guitarist Ed O’Brien tells Australia’s Beat magazine. “That’s why on ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ you don’t see the lyrics published, because there’s uncertainty. But this time he was really struck by the way a voice could be a musical instrument. From our point of view it was so obvious from day one, we went into the studio and he was so relaxed, there was none of the, ‘Here we are making our next record.’ He was very calm and he was just singing amazingly.” Beat.com.au has since removed the article.
