Jack White

Onstage at Bonnaroo last month, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke hinted at some sort of collaboration between the band and Jack White. And now Jack White has confirmed that Radiohead did indeed record something at White’s Third Man studios, though White himself wasn’t directly involved.

As NME points out, White recently told the BBC’s 6 Music, “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.”

So: We presumably won’t get to hear White playing any blazing white-hot solos over Radiohead’s mathed-out landscapes, but it’ll be intriguing to hear what the band does with an old-school recording setup like the one White has. And anyway, White has been known to be elusive about this sort of thing; I wouldn’t write off a full-on collaboration just yet.

  1. My day has been made.

  2. They possibly recorded Skirting on the Surface? That sounded like a more old-school song than let’s say Identikit.

  3. They would still be using the bands own gear, Jack White uses analog at Thirdman so its a matter of how they performed it. It could have been a live session also.

  4. let’s hope something with guitars
