Radiohead Almost Split When Finishing 'In Rainbows'


The long recording process of Radiohead's seventh album had baffled the members of the band with question whether they continue as a group or choose to go separate ways.

British rockers Radiohead nearly parted ways during the recording of their hit 2007 album "In Rainbows" - because the lengthy studio sessions dragged on for several years. The band began working on tracks for the groundbreaking record in 2005 before it was eventually released online using a 'pay-what-you-like' system in late 2007.

And guitarist Ed O'Brien admits the album process was so long and tedious, they weren't sure whether they would continue as a group. He tells Midem, "The recording of the album took three years. Which is a long time by anybody's standards. It pretty much half killed us. Whether the band would continue was very much in the balance."

But the musician is convinced the decision to release the album using such an unconventional sales technique saved them from a split. He adds, "It was empowering. You can't put it into a balance sheet, this feeling of empowerment. It completely rejuvenated us as a band. It got the creative juices flowing. You can't put a price on that. That's the stuff that keeps you going."
