Genie let out the bottle- it is now the witching hour...

And here's a tidbit of news that's totally unexpected...

Thom Yorke has just made a statement revealing the upcoming release of a solo album in July, to be titled The Eraser. Produced (of course) by Nigel Godrich.

The message from W.A.S.T.E.:

this is just a note to say that something has been kicking around in the background that i have not told you about.
its called The Eraser.
nigel produced & arranged it .
i wrote and played it.
the elements have been kicking round now for a few years and needed to be finished & i have been itching to do something like this for ages.
it was fun and quick to do.
inevitably it is more beats & electronics.
but its songs.
stanley did the cover.
yes its a record!
no its not a radiohead record.
as you know the band are now touring and writing new stuff and getting to a good space so i want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah...
this was all done with their blessing. and i don't wanna hear that word solo. doesnt sound right.
ok then thats that.

i think its out in july and im pretty certain XL are going to put it out.

love thom

Could this be part of the reason Radiohead won't be releasing an album in 2006? Who knows. Definitely something to look forward to in July...
