Radiohead is expected to release their next album in early 2008, but at least one track, Arpeggi, has been floating about. I am intrigued by the direction they are going with this track, embracing a sound that is more familiar in the world of classical minimalist compositions; Steve Reich’s New York Counterpoint comes to mind, and a little of Benjamin Britten’s Now the Great Bear and Pleiades for a vocal line. These are loose associations, maybe not helpful, but this definitely sounds like some sort of departure.
