Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)

Great news today out of Camp Radiohead: the band is working on the song "Nude" (a.k.a "Big Ideas [Don't Get Any]") for their upcoming album. I've always thought this song was killer back when I tried to listen to any and every note Radiohead had ever played and was glad to have an excuse to go back and listen to it today.

From the band's recording journal, Dead Air Space:
monday morning.

jonny is hastily writing out scores for a string quartet who are comign tommoro.

right now we are working on nude, it sounds beautiful, as far as i can tell.

i hope we dont get i'll. there is a lot of sickness about. especially for the children.

The song is a hold-over from the OK Computer days; it can be heard in the essential Rh doc Meeting People Is Easy. More on its history and lyrics here.

You can find a solo version of the song from Thom's set for the Trade Justice Movement here, if you want to do some work to unpack them... a couple unreleased gems are also included for your patience.
