**Update: Pitchfork has gotten word that Radiohead are not slated to appear on this album. It’s unclear why Mick Karn posted about such a project (too early for an announcement?), but for now it seems this isn’t happening.
It looks like Thom Yorke is going to bring the rest of his band along for his follow-up to Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, coming out this fall: According to Mick Karn’s official website (via At Ease), Radiohead will be featured on a David Bowie tribute album, due out in February of next year.
The album, which also features France’s first lady Carla Bruni and Charlotte Gainsbourg, will be the follow-up to this year’s War Child: Heroes charity album. Karn’s site notes that the forthcoming Bowie tribute was due out earlier, but was postponed to February 2010 because “some of the artist’s schedules [were] not permitting an earlier release.”
I don’t have any other details at this time, but one thing is known: this will be awesome.
