Last night Radiohead rocked the popular Tennessee festival Bonnaroo. Near the end of their set, singer Thom Yorke apparently gave a shout-out to Jack White and hinted at some sort of forthcoming collaboration.
According to reports, Yorke dedicated “Supercollider” to White and then said the following, “We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him [White], but we can’t tell you why. You’ll find out.”
The rumor mill has begun to speculate that a possible single might have been recorded between the two. White’s Third Man Records is based in Nashville which lies just over an hour away from where Bonnaroo takes places in Manchester, Tennessee. To add fuel to the speculation fire, Beck recorded a limited edition single last month with Jack White called, “I Just Started Hating Some People Today.” The single was released via White’s label.
Could a similar collaboration be in the works between Radiohead and Jack White? As Yorke stated on stage, I guess we will “find out.” [Billboard]
