Jack White Confirms Radiohead Recorded at Third Man
As free as they’ve been when it comes to debuting new material on the road during their latest tour, Radiohead tend to keep things pretty close to the vest when it comes to what they’re doing in the studio — but thanks to Jack White‘s loose lips, we know for sure that they recently cut some tracks at his Third Man Records complex.
White’s confirmation comes after Radiohead used their Bonnaroo set to hint at a collaboration with White, dedicating ‘Supercollider’ to him and saying, “We saw him yesterday. A big thank you to him, but we can’t tell you why. You’ll find out.”
The erstwhile White Stripe came clean to the BBC, saying, “I don’t know how much to tell about” the sessions but adding, “I didn’t play with them or produce it, but they came and recorded at Third Man, and I don’t know what else they want to be said about that so that’s probably all I can say!”
It isn’t much — and it isn’t as exciting as it would have been if White had actually collaborated with Radiohead — but it’s intriguing nonetheless. And given the band’s propensity for announcing new albums mere days before releasing them, we don’t doubt that we’ll find out more soon.
