Radiohead will finally expose a track that is nearly ten years in the making.
The band has decided to include the song, “Nude,” which was originally supposed to appear on 1997’s OK Computer, on the new album, which they are currently working on with producer Mark “Spike” Stent (Bjork, Madonna). On Monday [February 20], frontman Thom Yorke wrote on the band’s official site: “Jonny [Greenwood] is hastily writing out scores for a string quartet who are coming tomorrow. Right now we are working on “Nude.” It sounds beautiful, as far as I can tell.”
While the track has been played live since the band’s promotional tour for OK Computer, this is the first time it will appear on any official studio albums. The album is slated to be released later this year, according to NME.
Late last year guitarist Ed O’Brien told BBC 1 that Radiohead would tour behind the new release in the summer of 2006.
