“Radiohead is not breaking up” – Yorke’s handlers hasten to point this out, incidentally. As
previously reported, Yorke released the FeelingPulledApartbyHorses/The
Hollow Earth
12-inch on September 21. The single will be released digitally
October 6. Both tracks were produced by Nigel Godrich and mastered by Bob
Ludwig.
