CANOE -- JAM! Music: Yorke: No more Radiohead albums Yorke: No more Radiohead albums Thom Yorke
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has ruled out releasing any more Radiohead albums - because to do so would "kill" the band.
The Creep hitmakers are contemplating selling individual songs one at a time rather than full-length efforts, which Yorke insists requires a concerted effort to complete.
The rocker explains that their 2007 album In Rainbows was only made because the group had a clear vision to keep them on track in the recording studio.
He says, "None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha (commotion) of a long-play record again. Not straight off. I mean, it's just become a real drag. It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we've all said that we can't possibly dive into that again. It'll kill us." The star went on to clarify the band isn't necessarily against the concept of an album, adding, "Obviously, there's still something great about the album. It's just, for us, right now, we need to get away from it a bit. In Rainbows was a particular aesthetic and I can't bear the idea of doing that again." Radiohead's latest song, written in honour of the late World War I veteran Harry Patch, is only available via internet download.
