Is this a studio recording of ‘Follow Me Around’? UPDATE: NO

In our inbox this morning is a link to this YouTube video of a supposed recording of the old Radiohead song, “Follow Me Around.”

Where do we begin? First off, it sounds old. Though the video tags say TKOL2 indicating that this could be released in a potential upcoming release, the uploader does say he only tagged it this way so more people will find it. Our guess is if it’s real, it was recorded a long time ago and was never released. What do you think? Is it a clever fake?

UPDATE: Never mind. It’s old and not a real recording.

New Radiohead album news

Stumbled upon this link at our message board, Mortigi Tempo.

Dear ——–,

Bryan helped transform a house in the Hollywood Hills into a recording studio and spent the last three weeks there recording Radiohead with Nigel Godrich. On Saturday, we waded through a driveway full of Priuses and Minis to get to the wrap party. I was giddy seeing Beck, Selma Hayek and Danger Mouse chatting around the same pool where Dean Martin and the Rat Pack used to hang out. I marveled at the hair on one rock star that resembled one of those fuzzy boom mic covers. How exactly did he describe what he wanted to his hairdresser? I guess it was just proof rock stars can get away with stuff regular folks can’t. Thom Yorke periodically toyed with the iPhone that controlled the speakers. Usually he skipped forward to a Rolling Stones song. The band wanted to record in L.A. to get away from the dismal English winter. Nigel said they were probably lolling about too much in the sunshine when they first arrived. When it started pouring down, they realized someone up there was telling them to get on with it. If their last album was “In Rainbows,” I guess they could call this one “In Rainstorms.”

Bryan is most likely Bryan Cook, a music mixing engineer from LA. He updated his twitter with this little nugget:

is enjoying the afterglow of a career highlight: 3 weeks of recording Radiohead with producer Nigel Godrich!

Well, there you go.
