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.


Spotify Will Stream Radiohead's New Album 'As Soon As We Can,' Rep Says

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.



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.
