According to Fact Magazine, Radiohead have filmed a brand new music video together with Paul Thomas Anderson.
The band are set to drop their ninth studio album any day soon, with the first video having been filmed in a suburban American neighbourhood.
In an episode of For Crying Out Loud, author and comic Stefanie Wilder-Taylor explained how Anderson requested to have the video filmed in her house: “Oh, this happened, I forgot to tell you! So, I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door… there’s a guy with a clipboard. I come to the door with a scowl on my face and the guy says, ‘Hey, we’re in the neighbourhood, we’re going to be shooting a music video.’ So now, I’m thinking you’re basically telling me – what happens a lot in my neighbourhood, because it’s a very typical suburban looking neighbourhood – I’m gonna be inconvenienced.”
She further explains that Radiohead are the band in question, with Anderson coming over the following day: “Then the guy goes – ‘it’s Radiohead!’ I can’t tell you anything about it. I’m guessing that’s the non-disclosure part. Between us girls, Radiohead – I don’t give a shit, I don’t get it. I’ve heard one song I don’t care about – ‘Creep’. Yeah, you’re a creep and a loser and you’re putting me to sleep.”
“Here’s the cool part. Then the next day, the guy goes, I wanna bring the director by your house… this guy comes in, says ‘hey, this is the director, Paul’… really normal looking guy. Then I say, ‘hey, you look kind of familiar… Have we met?’ Do you make anything apart from music videos?” The filmmaker then explains he directed There Will Be Blood, according to Wilder-Taylor. “I was like, ‘Oh shit!‘”
Radiohead’s new album is set to be released imminently.
