Over the weekend, Thom Yorke and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich posted a photo of a white vinyl loaded up on a turntable, with a partial view of the album sleeve nearby, and of course everyone assumed this was the new Radiohead LP. But this one's not optimistic, because if that's the case, then Radiohead completed the quickest album artwork turnaround in history: The band just this month hit the studio for their first sessions for the King of Limbs follow-up.

More likely, the vinyl could be related to Thom Yorke solo material or Atoms for Peace, since Godrich is a member of that group. The artwork is certainly similar to Stanley Donwood's black-and-white imagery for Yorke's The Eraser and Atoms for Peace's Amok, which would support that theory.

Regardless, it's fun to once again be in Radiohead Speculation Mode.
