Radiohead Recorded New Material At Jack White's Studio

After hinting about a collaboration at Bonnaroo, Radiohead have been confirmed to have recorded new material at Jack White's Third Man studios in Nashville earlier this year. However, the former White Stripes frontman says that he was not involved with the rock giants' new songs. In an interview with BBC 6 Music on Wednesday (July 4), White revealed, "I don't know how much to tell about it except I didn't play with them or produce... But they came in and recorded at Third Man. I don't know what else to be said about that, so that's all I can probably say." During the group's June 8 headlining set at Bonnaroo, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke jump-started the alt-rock rumor mill when he alluded to a collaboration with White. "This song is for Jack White," Yorke told the crowd before playing "Supercollider." "We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him, but we can't tell you why. You'll find out." Thanks for the report to Billboard.com.

    Well he specifically said he didn't produce them when they were there, so... no?

    He was just the friend that let them use the studio. Radiohead probably recorded a new EP or album or something in one day. I wouldn't be surprised. Another surprise album

    Aw...I was kind of hoping for a Jack White/RH collab. As weird as that would've been, I bet it would have been amazing. Oh well, Radiohead is back in a studio at least - maybe it won't be another 4 year wait for an album.

    Hmm... So what exactly could Jack White have done that's not playing with them or producing? Clearly he's not saying something.

    Yeah, that "90's band" hasn't influenced a ton of bands in their own right and successfully changed musical direction to enter another decade and they certainly never tried to pioneer new ways to release music. *massive sarcasm* It's like calling the Beatles "an old 60's band." Some bands are timeless (no matter what time they entered the music scene), and I'd like to think Radiohead are one of them. I'm sure Jack feels the same.

    Wow the title of this article wasn't misleading. That's a step up for UG.
