Radiohead's Ed O'Brien has delivered the first taster of his debut solo album, 'Brasil'

Ed O'Brien has delivered the first taster of his debut album as EOB, 'Brasil'.

The Radiohead guitarist isn't mucking about, with a 9-minute long epic which is streaming online now.

“Brasil is a state of mind, not a place or time. H.P. Lovecraft, Kubrick, and Junji Ito have created some of my favorite sci-fi narratives,” he says. “But I’ve always wanted to reinterpret their horrific premises into a more poetic and optimistic notion. What if an alien or higher being were to come to earth to help us achieve a greater existence, and not to destroy us? What would it look like if everyone on earth shared thoughts, experiences, and actions? The theory that humans, as a species, actually represent one large, singular organism has always fascinated me, and I wanted to explore that concept visually through a variety of different character perspectives, mediums, and impressionistic visual effects. All these layers and ideas culminated into our narrative for ‘Brasil.’"

So there we go.

EOB's debut album will be released in early 2020. There's a video for 'Brasil' too, which you can check out below.
