Gatefold double LP, new solo album from Radiohead's Thom Yorke

Includes 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 140-gram black discs that includes a 10th track — "Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming." There is also a limited time album download coupon included in the package.
