Radiohead Recorded New Material at Jack White's Studio
But the White Stripes frontman didn't produce or play on the track.
After hinting about a collaboration at Bonnaroo, Radiohead have been confirmed to have recorded new material at Jack White's Third Man studios in Nashville earlier this year. However, the former White Stripes frontman says that he was not involved with the rock giants' new songs.
In an interview with BBC 6 Music on Wednesday (July 4), White revealed, "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."
During the group's June 8 headlining set at Bonnaroo, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke jump-started the alt-rock rumor mill when he alluded to a collaboration with White. "This song is for Jack White," Yorke told the crowd before playing "Supercollider." "We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him, but we can't tell you why. You'll find out."
Yorke and co. join a slew of artists who have recently recorded at Third Man; Beck, for instance, recorded a limited edition single for the label, "I Just Started Hating Some People Today," alongside White, and released the track in May. Radiohead are recently recovering from a stage collapse in Toronto which killed crew member Scott Johnson and forced the group to reschedule seven shows that followed.
