In a new interview, Thom Yorke revealed he's been "trying to finish a record" with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

Thom Yorke has had his mind in multiple projects over the past month, having created a soundtrack for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspiria, as well as having joined Greenpeace's campaign for a sanctuary in Antarctica with recent track "Hands Off The Antarctic".

In a new interview with Spain's El Mundo, Thom Yorke revealed of his upcoming solo project, "I didn’t have the wish to make politically charged music, but everything I do goes that way anyways."

On the musical direction of his forthcoming solo record, Yorke explains, “It’s very electronic, but different to anything I’ve done till now. The method has been the opposite of depending on computers. It’s a weird process by which we made a song in the studio, we break it after that, we rebuild it with a live mix and it comes out different again, and that’s what we record. We’ve improvised with a lot of sounds and effects. It has been a very weird way to make a record, which is very exciting."

Thom Yorke's last solo album was 2014's Tomorrow's Modern Boxes.

The Radiohead frontman's soundtrack for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspiria arrives tomorrow (26 October). Thom Yorke tours the US until the end of the year. Find out more.
