Announced as the first headliners for Glastonbury 2017, Radiohead have been gradually drip-feeding excitement for widespread fans over the course of this entire year.
At the beginning of 2016, January saw speculation, teasing fans over an imminent album release. March speculated the possible artwork to accompany the album A Moon Shaped Pool.
March also saw the release of May through August tour dates . . .
. . . then they disappeared . . .
Going back to beginnings, Radiohead’s debut 1993 single ‘Creep’ was also performed in May 2016; the first time in seven years.
Furthermore, guitarist Ed O’Brien now finds time to release superb solo material . . . This is the year of Radiohead, so far. European dates add to this momentum and, of course, fans of all generations will no doubt continue to learn more.
