All it took to tame the rumor monster around was a Billboard report of Radiohead announcing that “These Are My Twisted Words” as a free download via their own online store. This will be a stand-alone track only and no EP, as theorized, will accompany it.
However, Johnny Greenwood had this to say on the site about the track:
We’ve been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished. We’re pretty proud of it. There’s other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we’ve been practicing, and which we’ll probably play at this summer’s concerts. Hope you like it.
