New Radiohead album?

Thom Yorke teases new work with mysterious white vinyl

Is it a new Radiohead album? Another Atoms for Peace record? Nobody knows

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich have both posted photos on Tumblr of a mysterious white vinyl. This means one of three things in order of varying excitement levels: either Radiohead have made a new record, Atoms For Peace have made a new record, or Thom Yorke has made a new record.

Either way, Radiohead fans are losing their shit – especially since the artwork in the background of the picture looks suspiciously like the handiwork of Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood, who designed the album cover for Hail to the Thief. 

So what's going on? Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood revealed in July that he had been exchanging song ideas with Thom Yorke over email and said he hoped to get back into the studio in September, which FYI, is right now. The band also recently updated their Polyfauna app with new snippets of music and visuals, which hints at a follow-up to their last album, 2011's King Of Limbs

Our guess? Thom Yorke has taken a leaf out of Aphex Twin's book and he's going to flog a test pressing of the new Radiohead album for an astronomical amount on Discogs.
