Radiohead album nears completion

    Some exciting Radiohead news arrived yesterday via a post from Ed O’ Brien on the band’s DeadAirSpace site: the new Radiohead is “nearly there.” It’s the first progress report we’ve heard since the band announced that it had started recording back in January. Granted, Thom Yorke could fart near a microphone and the blogs would be clamoring to speculate what he ate that day, but considering we’ve been waiting four years already for a follow up to Hail to the Thief, O’Brien’s missive comes as big news. Plus, the ‘Head has debuted a whole bunch of quality new tunes in the last couple years of touring that we’d all just lurve to hear in their recorded incarnations.
    So now that Radiohead has fulfilled its recording contract with EMI, who is going to release the new album when it’s ready? Any bidders?
