Thom Yorke Confirms New 12″, Considers Name Change

The reports were true: Thom’s releasing a pair of “new” songs this month (9/21), both produced by Nigel Godrich, both under his name (Thom Yorke, for now). He wrote on deadairspace this morning:

Dear Sir or Madam

This is to inform you of the release of two more bits of work shortly.
They are loosely under the Thom Yorke name this time, although these days its all getting kind of blurry.
FeelingPulledApartbyHorses is written & played by Jonny and I and is a radical rework of an old tune thats been kicking around without a home since 2001? i think.
The Hollow Earth is a bass menace that was born out of the Eraser period but needed a little more time.
Both were produced by Nigel Godrich as ever. And mastered by Bob Ludwig.
They are being put out on 12″ with sliced sleeve by Stanley and Tchock.
My sources tell me this will be available from the 21st of September if you’re interested.. On sale in the w.a.s.t.e part of our website (with a gratis download.)
Or you can go buy it in a good record shop if you are lucky enough to have one near you.
Then later on there will be like a normal download thing i think around the 6th of Oct through the usual channels.

And so it goes. all the best

Pre-order is up now at the W.A.S.T.E. store for 10 quid. There’s a gratis digital download for W.A.S.T.E. members on release day, followed by an official digital release 10/6. This whole disenchantment with the album format thing is working out pretty well so far.

In other W.A.S.T.E. news, “These Are My Twisted Words” is now a t-shirt.

Finally, here’s a new video of comedian Adam Buxton with the singer at Latitude, suggesting some smart alternatives (T.Homme, Thomosexual) to “Thom Yorke,” which is played out.
