Everybody’s favorite happy-go-lucky UK boy band has delayed the release of their seventh album until 2008, reports NME. Radiohead have not released an album since 2003’s Hail to the Thief. The band have been working on new material (including a recent stint in the studio in New York), but apparently forgot they left their label EMI after Thief and, gee, it’s kind of hard to release an album without a label. Actually, no, they didn’t forget, they just stopped caring:

Radiohead’s management dismissed speculation over recent months that Warner Music was poised to secure the band’s signature. “The band [is] not looking for a record company in any way, shape or form,” the representative says. “They are out of a contract, but they’re not actively looking for another one. They’re getting on with doing what they do.”

Which is, I guess, make music nobody can hear, except in tiny little clips on a confusing website that has a tendency to lock up your computer. (Seriously.) Please, guys, we know you’re annoyed with the Industry. We’re all annoyed with the Industry. But that’s all the more reason to speed your cathartic tunes to us! Malaise! Besides, the world might end before 2008!! Isn’t that what Kid A is about?!

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
