Radiohead Reportedly Film New Music Video With Paul Thomas Anderson
Radiohead have reportedly filmed a new music video with director Paul Thomas Anderson.
On an episode of her podcast, For Crying Out Loud, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, a stand-up comedian and author, let slip the English alt-rockers filmed the music video in her L.A. neighborhood:
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 neighborhood, 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 neighborhood, because it’s a very typical suburban-looking neighborhood -- I’m gonna be inconvenienced.
This is a pretty major reveal considering Thom Yorke and company have been super-secretive when it comes to their The King of Limbs follow-up. As it turns out, Wilder-Taylor has disregarded a non-disclosure agreement in talking about the music video. (Also, she doesn’t really like the non-representative “Creep.”)
“Then the guy goes, ‘It’s Radiohead,’” Wilder-Taylor continued. “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 s---, 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.”
And finally, Wilder-Taylor discovered Anderson was the one helming the clip:
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?..." I was like, "Oh s---!"
Radiohead’s ninth full-length is expected in the very near future after the band opened a new company, which they did ahead of their last two albums. They have also announced a tour (which sold out within minutes), a slew of festival dates and unveiled possible album art.
