Thom Yorke On Remix Album
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has spoken about the band’s forthcoming ‘The King Of Limbs’ remix album.
Yorke said he believes the current “culture of remixing” is healthy for music.
Radiohead are set to release a remix album, ‘TKOL RMX 1234567′ featuring 19 remixed tracks from ‘The King Of Limbs’, on 10th October. The album will feature remixes from artists including Caribou, Jamie xx and Four Tet.
“The remix 12-inches came out of us wanting to experiment with the tunes further,” Yorke told Radiohead fansite ateaseweb.com. “I was really curious to see how the people I was listening to so much would use what we gave them. I didn’t just want floorfillers and all that shit, I just wanted to see how the songs could really branch out and mutate. I think it appeals to us as a band at the moment that ideas and versions are not so fixed and set in stone, it feels kind of healthy for music,” he added.
Radiohead recently starred in the opening episode of Saturday Night Live’s 37th season, whilst Thom Yorke also announced that the band plan to tour in 2012.
While appearing on Gilles Peterson’s show on BBC Radio 1, Yorke said: “The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year.”
