Jack White Confirms That Radiohead Recorded at Third Man Records, Says He Didn't Play on or Produce It

Posted By on Thu, Jul 5, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Well, the scuttlebutt has been substantiated. You may recall that, during his band's Bonnaroo set, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke hinted at a potential Jack White collab, saying, "Big thank you to Jack White. We're not gonna tell you why, but you'll find out." NME now reports that White has confirmed that the Oxfordian electro-rock icons did indeed record some new stuff at TMR, but that White neither played on nor produced the material. White told BBC Music 6 the following:

I don’t know how much to tell about it except I didn't play with them or produce. But they came in and recorded at Third Man. I don't know what else to be said about that, so that’s all I can probably say.

Of course, in light of Radiohead's recent stage collapse in Toronto — which killed 33-year-old drum tech Scott Johnson — and the band's ensuing rescheduling of seven dates, there's no telling if their time line is quite what it was when they originally stopped off here in Nashville. Either way, collab confirmed.
