In January, Radiohead fans speculated that a new album was forthcoming when it was revealed that the band had registered a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP. It was notable because the band also established companies before the surprise releases of both In Rainbows and The King of Limbs. Today, it emerged that the band has formed another company: Dawnnchoruss Ltd., as Consequence of Sound points out. Dawnnchoruss was established at the end of February, and lists the five members of Radiohead as its officers.
The band has been working on the new LP for a while. In separate interviews given in 2015, Jonny Greenwood and Philip Selway discussed the band’s progress, with Selway saying the recording would become “quite a full schedule” in September. They were then photographed in the studio back in September, right before Dawn Chorus was established. In October, Greenwood shot down reports that the album was completed, but said they had completed “lots” and were about to go through it.
In an interview with DIY, Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood said the new record isn’t finished. Asked if he’d heard the record, and if it was completed, he replied: “I have. Is it done? not yet…”
