Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien recently posted a hand written letter on his Instagram announcing the release of his upcoming solo album in 2020, according to Billboard. O’Brien’s letter was addressed to the “sisters and brothers of the Radiohead family,” and mentions collaborations with Laura Marling, Adrian Utley, and Colin Greenwood, among others.
Although O’Brien has flourished as the guitarist of Radiohead, he has yet to release a solo studio album. There is no doubt that fans of Radiohead have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of a solo album from O’Brien, and they will get their first chance to hear his work as a solo artist very soon. The first single of the album, “Brasil,” is set to be released this upcoming Thursday, December 5th. The single will most likely be a reflection of O’Brien’s time living in Brazil with his family following Radiohead’s The King of Limbs tour in 2012.
It has been some time since Radiohead released a studio album; although they released tapes of their OK Computer recording sessions in 2017, their last official studio album was back in 2016. Fans will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting the release of O’Brien’s upcoming album.
