Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien has announced Earth, his debut solo album as EOB, which is set for release on April 17th via Capitol. As part of the announcement, O’Brien has shared a trailer for the record and a new track called “Shangri-La.”
“Here’s the album. Thank you for waiting,” O’Brien wrote on Instagram. “It’s called Earth and it’s coming out on April 17 in time for Summer… Thank you to all the incredible musicians who helped me and the people who put it together in the studio. It was a proper journey getting here. Recorded in Wales and London. Phew we made it!!”
The new track, “Shangri-La” revolves around a quirky, circular instrumental line, as O’Brien’s dreamy falsettos deliver lines like, “Going round/ I’m not going back.”
