Radiohead bassist Ed O’Brien has revealed plans to release his highly anticipated debut solo album later on in the year.

The musician has been hoping to go solo for a while now and said all the way back in 2016 that he wanted to release an album by the end of 2018. Good things come to those who wait and O’Brien has said that we can expect the album this fall.

He made the announcement during his appearance on That Pedal Show where he revealed that he has been working with an impressive range of talents. Producers such as Wolf Alice’s producer Catherine Mark’s and U2s producer, Flood, have been involved in the production of the record. The tracks will include music from a studio band which includes Dave Okumu, Nathan East and Omar Hakim, who worked with David Bowie. O’Brien will be doing vocals, electric and acoustic guitar along with the bass.

When asked how the album will compare to Radiohead’s music, O’Brien said: “You’ll make a little connection. There will be textures. There’s quite a lot of depth it. It’s a little bit magical realist, slightly psychedelic, a lot of colour.”
