Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has announced details of his new musical project – just don’t go calling it a ‘solo record’.

The project will be called The Eraser, and is said to be an extrapolation of the electronics and beats which defined parts of Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ albums.

Yorke enlisted the help of long-time Radiohead collaborators Nigel Godrich (producer) and Stanley Donwood (artwork) for the album which is due to be released in July by XL Recordings.

A message from Yorke to fan club members said:

yes its a record!
no its not a radiohead record.
as you know the band are now touring and writing new stuff and getting to a good space so i want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah...
this was all done with their blessing. and i don't wanna hear that word solo. doesnt sound right.
ok then thats that.

It is being reported that one of the tracks, ‘black swan’, will appear during the closing credits of Richard Linklater’s upcoming film adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel ‘A Scanner Darkly’.

‘The Eraser’ tracklisting:

1 the eraser
2 analyse
3 the clock
4 black swan
5 skip divided
6 atoms for peace
7 and it rained all night
8 harrowdown hill
9 cymbal rush
