Radiohead: ‘No Kings of Limbs, Part II’
British rockers Radiohead have denied rumours they are releasing a second album of material from The King Of Limbs recording sessions, insisting they plan to ìstart afreshî with new songs.
The band unveiled its eighth studio album in February and hopeful fans were quick to speculate that the Creep hitmakers had an imminent follow-up waiting to hit shelves.
The rumours were fuelled after two new tracks, Supercollider and The Butcher, leaked online.
But guitarist Ed OíBrien insists those songs are actually part of a special vinyl EP they created to mark Britainís Record Store Day on Saturday, when fans are encouraged to go out and buy music from independent shops.
OíBrien admits devotees will have to wait a while before hearing new music from the band – because there are no other tracks ready for release.
He tells the BBC, ìThe Butcher is from the King Of Limbs sessions. Supercollider was recorded during that period and finished off after the album came out.
ìThere are (other) songs that we have started, that we never finished, but thereís not like seven or eight finished songs waiting in the wings to be released now, or in the autumn, or something.
ìWhen we start a new record, we tend to start afresh. Itís kind of an evolutionary thing – only the fittest survive.î
