After a long weekend of waiting for a rumored new EP from Radiohead today, fans were likely a bit disappointed to only get a free download of the single “These Are My Twisted Words,” which leaked on the Internet last week and started all this EP speculation in the first place. In a post on Radiohead’s official site, Jonny Greenwood posted the news this morning:
So here’s a new song, called ‘These Are My Twisted Words’.
We’ve been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished.
We’re pretty proud of it.
There’s other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we’ve been practicing, and which we’ll probably play at this summer’s concerts. Hope you like it.
On one hand, this does put an end to the speculation that the leaked track is Thom Yorke’s contribution to the New Moon soundtrack and it does confirm that the song to be a new tune from the band, but perhaps Radiohead’s “surprise” this time around was simply that there were no surprises.
