Well, there’s some good news to wake up to today. Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke just announced he’s putting out a new album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxesvia BitTorrent — and we don’t even have to wait. Stream it in full after the jump or go here to purchase it right now.

This isn’t entirely out of nowhere, though. A few days ago, Yorke and his longtime producer and collaborator Nigel Godrich both shared a photo of an unnamed album and artwork by longtime Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood. In a note Yorke and Godrich released to the press today, they explained …

Radiohead Are Recording a New Album in September

At the beginning of this year, Radiohead fans were ecstatic to hear Colin Greenwood say the band’s plans to record new material were up in the air. As indefinite as that was, it still meant there was the possibility of new music. Today, Jonny Greenwood tells us that we may not have to wait that much longer for a follow-up to 2011′s The King of Limbs.

In an interview with Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 6, Jonny Greenwood addresses the state of the band’s future and confirmed that new music was on the way, as NME points …

Stream El-P’s Remix of Warpaint’s “Keep It Healthy”

Brooklyn rapper El-P’s (and one half of Run The Jewels) is best known for his aggressive, sometimes political raps. It may come as a surprise, then, that he’s come and remixed Warpaint‘s “Keep It Healthy,” but El-P has actually done a handful of official remixes over the years. That’s probably why this one sounds so great.

On El-P’s remix, we get tones similar to a smooth, dark Radiohead track in a version that’s just begging for El-P to rap a couple bars over it. My guess is he’s already spitting out words at home, waiting to bring …

Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood Talks Future Plans, New Album “Up In The Air”

Radiohead are known for taking their time between new releases, but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t always clamoring for more music from the iconic English group. Unfortunately, it will likely be some time before we get a follow-up to 2011′s The King Of Limbs, according to bassist Colin Greenwood.

In a recent interview with Drowned In Sound, Greenwood had this to say about the band’s future plans:

It’s all up in the air at the minute. [Vocalist Thom Yorke]‘s just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he’s having some quiet time. I’m sorry to be vague

Thom Yorke Performs Unreleased Song “Honey Pot”

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke recently debuted an unreleased new song during a radio appearance at KCRW with longtime Radiohead engineer/Atoms for Peace member Nigel Godrich. Now, thanks to the power of YouTube, fans around the world can enjoy the track.

Described by Yorke as “a remix of [Radiohead’s In Rainbows track] ‘All I Need’ that turned into a new song that no one’s ever heard and we didn’t know what to do with,” “Honey Pot” is a timid indie jam that doesn’t fall too far outside the singer’s usual output. It’s hard to get a full grasp of the track …

Thom Yorke And Nigel Godrich Are Doing An AMA On Reddit RIGHT NOW

Musician Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich will be doing an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit today, starting at 12:30pm EST, according to Yorke’s label XL Recordings.

That’s right, for a short period of time all that will separate you from the Radiohead frontman (and Radiohead’s long-time producer) is a keyboard and an internet connection.

But maybe keep the Radiohead questions to a minimum? The AMA is being billed as an Atoms For Peace affair. The experimental supergroup – consisting of Yorke, Godrich, percussionist Maruo Refosco, drummer Joey Waronker, and bass guitarist Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers

WATCH: Lance Armstrong Singing Radiohead’s “Creep”

Sports! Yeah, love em, uh totally.

We know that athletics isn’t really a part of our usual coverage. But it’s a slow news day and this is too good to pass up. Plus, it’s tangentially music-related!

Lance Armstrong has went from universally adored American Hero to a cautionary tale in a fall so public, so spectacular, that you must have heard something about it. Like, maybe his “tell-all” interview with Oprah Winfrey where he admitted to using performance enhancing drugs? They made a pretty big deal about it.

Well here’s a bit of shadenfreude to start off your work …

LISTEN: Willow Smith Singing Over A Radiohead Song

Budding pop star Willow Smith aka the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett aka the girl who had a neck injury inducing hit two years back is maturing at an astonishing pace.

Not only has Willow already discovered seminal Brit alt rock act Radiohead (she’s twelve!) but she’s spurned her Top 40 sound by singing over a Radiohead song. And it actually works!

No, it’s not a cover. “Sugar and Spice” features original, maudlin lyrics from Willow, including lines like “they wanna puncture me and then wonder why I bleed”, “inject my soul with darkness”, and “I’m melancholy and can’t …
