Thom Yorke announces new album ANIMA, due next week
Following last years’ Suspiria score, Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke has announced his latest solo record. ANIMA, set to be released next Thursday, June 27th, marks Yorke’s first solo album since 2014’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes. Some of the songs on the record were debuted live during shows under the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes header alongside Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri. Yorke wrote and Godrich produced ANIMA. The group will continue their tour this fall and will likely play even more of the album.
In addition to the album, Yorke also announced the release of a “one-reeler”. The film, also titled ANIMA, was directed by Paul-Thomas Anderson and features three songs from the album. It is set to be released on June 27th with the album and will be exclusively available via Netflix.
While the digital version of ANIMA will be out very soon, physical versions of the album won’t be available till next month. Yorke is offering three vinyl versions of the album; one black, one orange, and one heavyweight orange. The latter includes a 40-page lyric booklet as well as drawings by Stanley Donwood and Dr Tchock. Vinyl versions of the record also boast a bonus track titled “Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming.” Physical versions of the album can be purchased here.
