So I stumbled across this gem earlier today. It’s supposedly a new Radiohead song entitled “These Are My Twisted Words”
that isn’t due to be released for quite some time that has seemingly surfaced out of nowhere. I initially had my doubts as to whether this was the real deal or not, but after giving it a good couple of listens, it’s definitely the unmistakable voice of Thom Yorke. It reminds me of the sound and style showcased on one of Radiohead’s greatest albums, Kid A. Take a listen and tell me what you think.
The release of this track comes just a few days after Thom Yorke said Radiohead will not be releasing a new album anytime soon.
“None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again,” he said. “Not straight off…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. …obviously, there’s still something great about the album,” Yorke said. “In Rainbows was a particular aesthetic and I can’t bear the idea of doing that again. Not that it’s not good, I just can’t…bear…that.”
