Rumored album titles "2+2=5" or "Are You Listening" could not be confirmed by the spokesperson. An as-yet-unnamed single will precede the album in mid-May.
The new Nigel Godrich-produced album follows up the sets "Kid A" and "Amnesiac," which debuted on The Billboard 200 at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, within eight months of each other in 2000-2001.
Radiohead has begun confirming summer European festival appearances, the latest of which is June 28 at the Glastonbury Festival in Pilton, England. R.E.M. and another as-yet-unnamed act will headline the other two days of the event.
In other Radiohead news, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has scored the film "Bodysong." Says the artist, "Most film score writing demands discipline. You have to use click-tracks, and provide music that makes its point in, say, 20 seconds -- and even leaves spaces for dialogue. This wasn't true with 'Bodysong,' which meant I could let musicians play at tempos that felt right. So I had the luxury of just concentrating on trying to put some kind of mood across."
