Radiohead Producer Nigel Godrich Says 'Moon' Sessions Were 'Very Intense' For Him
Radiohead's long-time producer Nigel Godrich revealed on Sunday that the sessions for the group's just-released ninth album, A Moon Shaped Pool were "a very intense experience" for him because his father died during recording.
It's out! Making this album was a very intense experience for me. I lost my dad in the process...Hence a large piece of my soul lives here..— nigel godrich (@nigelgod) May 8, 2016
The 11-track album was made available on iTunes, Tidal and the group's website on Sunday, but at present it is not on Spotify, though the first two singles, "Burn the Witch," and "Daydreaming," are. The sessions were difficult for Godrich, but he said the struggle was a good thing and he thanked his "brothers" in Radiohead for helping him get through it.
..in a good way. I eternally thank my brothers in radiohead for all the love that went into it.. and for their support. happy listening all!— nigel godrich (@nigelgod) May 8, 2016
He also shared some behind-the-scenes pictures from the sessions for the band's ninth album, their first since 2011's The King of Limbs.
On Friday, Radiohead released the cinematic video for "Daydreaming," which was directed by the acclaimed Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Inherent Vice), who sent 35mm copies of the clip to a number of movie theaters across the U.S.
