Radiohead have reportedly shot a new music video with director Paul Thomas Anderson.
In a new podcast, author and stand-up Stefanie Wilder-Taylor says, “Oh, this happened, I forgot to tell you! So, I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door… there’s a guy with a clipboard. I come to the door with a scowl on my face and the guy says, ‘Hey, we’re in the neighbourhood, we’re going to be shooting a music video.’ So now, I’m thinking you’re basically telling me – what happens a lot in my neighbourhood, because it’s a very typical suburban looking neighbourhood – I’m gonna be inconvenienced.”
“Then the guy goes – ‘it’s Radiohead!’ I can’t tell you anything about it. I’m guessing that’s the non-disclosure part. Between us girls, Radiohead – I don’t give a s***, I don’t get it. I’ve heard one song I don’t care about – ‘Creep’. Yeah, you’re a creep and a loser and you’re putting me to sleep.”
She continues, “Here’s the cool part. Then the next day, the guy goes, I wanna bring the director by your house… this guy comes in, says ‘Hey, this is the director, Paul’… really normal looking guy. Then I say, ‘Hey, you look kind of familiar… Have we met?’ Do you make anything apart from music videos?… I was like, ‘Oh s***!’”
Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has worked on the soundtracks to Anderson’s films There Will Be Blood, The Master, and Inherent Vice.
Radiohead are expected to release a new album soon, as they have booked a UK tour and some festival dates.
