Still holding for Solo Album

Well, it's not news to any of us Phillovers, but here's the NME's attempt at aligning themselves with the Philness.

Radiohead drummer Phil Selway to release solo album

Selway has taken his hand to singing for new effort

Radiohead drummer Phil Selway has announced that he is set to release a solo album.

Selway, who sings on the album, is currently in the process of recording the as-yet untitled record in his band's Oxfordshire studio.

He enlisted the services of Wilco members Glenn Kotche and Pat Sansone to play on the project, and multi-instrumentalist solo artist Lisa Germano and bass player Sebastian Steinberg have also contributed.

The Radiohead man debuted a solo song, 'The Family Madness', live in Auckland in January, playing guitar and singing. The show was for the 7 Worlds Collide project, which the musicians working on his album are also part of.

Selway is yet to reveal the release date - and crucially as a member of Radiohead - the method by which his solo album will come out.
