Radiohead fans are rabid enough in the quest for new material that when the band started rehearsing a new song, “Full Stop,” in sound-checks before their concerts earlier this week, two separate recordings of barely audible sound from outside the arena hit the internet and raised serious attention. Last night the band unveiled the song at a concert in Chicago, which you can watch below. Some fan, apparently thinking he was watching Ozzy Osbourne circa 1979, throws devil horns in front of the camera for a solid two minutes. That’s commitment.
In other Radiohead news, earlier this week at the band’s set at Bonnaroo, Thom Yorke hinted at a collaboration with Jack White, according to NME. Before launching into “Supercollider,” Yorke said, “This song is for Jack White. We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him, but we can’t tell you why. You’ll find out.”
Whether the collaboration will be with Radiohead itself or a side project like Atoms for Peace, Yoke’s band with producer Nigel Godrich and Flea, remains to be seen. But since the shout-out came during a Radiohead set and specifically referenced “Supercollider,” we’re guessing it’s more Radiohead-specific. Check out “Full Stop” below.
