With whom?

It’s Sunday morning 8:37AM and I have nothing better to do than writing a new blog entry. Today it’s about collaborations between (members of) Radiohead and other musicians. Of which there have been a lot. And some of the music produced is so beautiful it might just be your Sunday morning inspiration.

I’ve been collecting Radiohead’s music for a while now, and that includes (like a real fan) everything. All their albums, live recordings, bootlegs, foreign issues, limited editions, rare recordings..and duets, collaborations (mostly Thom Yorke doing the vocals) and others. Sometimes I know the other artists, sometimes I don’t. I find this part of collecting quite fun. Especially when one finds something totally unexpected.

Last week I was watching the Japanese movie Kokuhaku (Confessions) and I could have sworn I heard a very familiar voice. And indeed, after a little searching I found that Thom Yorke was singing Last Flowers, a track featured on the In Rainbows Bonus Disc. Beautiful.

So I thought I’d make a little list of the collaborations I am aware of (to be found on YouTube), but there might be more. If you spot something..please do let me know! Enjoy.

I’m not dreaming

Because the good news is finally here: new album (digital) release on May 8th. I am overjoyed and can’t wait to hear what’s in store for us. The pre-released two videos (Daydreaming being the latest) are encouraging..but personally I hope there’s a few more up-tempo tracks on this album. I’ve been missing that..and have been dwelling on TKOL RMX 1234567 for a long time now (especially Caribous awesome remix), and enough is enough.

Another thing I’m looking forward to is the new album art. Being an enormous fan of Stanley Donwood’s art, I’m eagerly anticipating what’s going to be on the new album and singles.

Here’s the latest single Daydreaming:

Finally! It’s been a while since something new came from my RadioHoofd friends, but the new single is here. And I think it’s pretty good (after just hearing it once). I’m dying to see them again live..but the only opportunity here is a festival in Quebec for which no day-passes are available, only the whole thing, and thus waaay too expensive. Bugger. Now to wait for the new album..and new possibilities to see RH live..

So..what do YOU think?
