According to a member of Radiohead‘s management team, Brian Message, the band’s new album is set to be released in June.
During an event at London’s Wanstead Tap, Message said the following of the upcoming album: “There’s nothing out there right now that sounds anything like this. And for some people that will be a good thing and for others that probably won’t.”
Although earlier reports described him as Radiohead’s manager, the band have made the following contradictory statement: “At an industry event in London last night Brian Message was asked about new Radiohead music. Quotes attributed to him and taken from his talk have subsequently appeared, describing him as Radiohead’s manager. Brian Message is not Radiohead’s manager – he is a partner in Courtyard Management but plays no operational role, and therefore any quotes from last night’s event, or any supposition arising from them, should not be attributed to Radiohead’s management or be seen as official quotes on behalf of the group. Radiohead are managed by Chris Hufford and Bryce Edge at Courtyard Management.”
As it stands, June is the only date which has been solidly suggested as a potential release date for the new Radiohead album.
