Thom Yorke has joined the growing community of artists who reckon that
albums may become a thing of the past in the download music era. With
Radiohead’s album commitment to EMI label Parlophone complete Yorke has told reporters he thinks the band’s next project is more likely to be an EP.
“We feel that after Hail to the Thief we want to definitely disappear into a
black hole of the unknown rather than carrying on where we left off. We
don’t know where we’re going next, but it’s unlikely to be another 14-track
record. It’s always been album, album, album – but things are changing.
Things like iTunes and people splitting up tracks. I kind of think that’s
good. I listen to music on random all the time.”
