Limited deluxe edition on 180-gram 2LP orange vinyl

Includes lyric book and limited time album download

Radiohead's Thom Yorke has detailed his "dystopian" new solo album: Anima is out June 27 via XL. Yorke wrote and produced Anima with Nigel Godrich.

Yorke says the record is influenced by his ongoing anxieties and fears about world events. He cites Flying Lotus' semi-improvized live shows as an inspiration on the new LP.

"We watched Flying Lotus in the early years on tour with us, and we watched him with his live set-up performing all his loops and thought, ‘Well that's interesting,' because it's a live performance, he's improvising. We suddenly realised this is a new way to write stuff. I would send (Nigel Godrich) completely unfinished, sprawling tracks and he would focus in on the bits and pieces that he thought would work, build them up into samples and loops, and then throw them back at me, where I would start writing vocals," says Yorke.

Yorke is releasing Anima as a double vinyl edition on two 180-gram orange discs that includes a 10th track — "Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming." The set also includes a hardback lyric book containing drawings by Stanley Donwood and Dr. Tchock.
