Eight years after his first solo album ‘The Eraser’, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke announced his second solo album ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ in 2014. Produced as usual by Nigel Godrich, the album was initially only available through BitTorrent on download and limited edition vinyl. Three years later, it is now getting released on XL Records on CD and vinyl and will be available through Keymailorder. Also available on vinyl.
Recognisably the work of Yorke courtesy of that voice, he draws on the most minimal elements of his back catalogue for this album which largely comprises electronic vignettes and no evidence of any guitars. It may not appeal to fans of Radiohead’s 1990s era work but listeners who have moved with the band over their long career will find plenty to satisfy their need for more Thom in their ears.
