This past weekend, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke stirred up some wild speculation when he posted a photo to his Tumblr of a white 12-inch record on a turntable, which was reposted through Radiohead’s own Tumblr and by the band’s producer Nigel Godrich. Though it still isn’t clear as to what this mysterious record might be, Yorke has provided some more possible clues this morning (Sept. 23) through his Twitter account by posting photos of a lyric sheet and some artwork.
Yorke’s first tweet includes a photo of a lyric sheet for Radiohead’s song “A Wolf At The Door” with what looks like a verse that was cut from the final version of the song that appeared on the band’s 2003 album Hail to the Thief. You can check out that tweet right here:

As this first tweet is pretty confusing on its own, Yorke sent out a second tweet hours later to clarify what he’s up to, saying that he and Radiohead’s art director Stanley Donwood are looking through old lyrics and artwork. Yorke also notes that today is Radiohead’s second day in the studio, presumably at work on their upcoming ninth album. You can check out that tweet right here:
