Claims of Radiohead’s album dropping in June not from their manager after all

Though they're also not directly denied as being true, either.
When will Radiohead’s new album drop?

For a while, we thought we knew, when someone tagged as ‘Radiohead’s manager’ at an industry event claimed it was coming in June. However, that’s not the case.

Following the news breaking, the band issued a statement to deny the comments were true.

“At an industry event in London last night Brian Message was asked about new Radiohead music. Quotes attributed to him and taken from his talk have subsequently appeared, describing him as Radiohead’s manager. Brian Message is not Radiohead’s manager – he is a partner in Courtyard Management but plays no operational role, and therefore any quotes from last night’s event, or any supposition arising from them, should not be attributed to Radiohead’s management or be seen as official quotes on behalf of the group.

Radiohead are managed by Chris Hufford and Bryce Edge at Courtyard Management.”

That’s not a denial that the album will come in June – you’d imagine a partner in the band’s management may know the details, after all – but they’re not confirming that either way.

Let’s face it though, the smart bets are we’ll have Radiohead’s ninth album before the summer really gets going.
