Ed O’Brien has begun recording his debut solo album. In a new interview with Esquire, the Radiohead guitarist reveals he’s working with producers Flood and Catherine Marks on the LP. During a three-week recording period, he enlisted band-members Omar Hakim (who drummed on Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”) and Nathan East, with the Invisible’s Dave Okumu on lead guitar. “The idea is to have [the album] finished by this summer,” O’Brien says, projecting a release date late next year or in early 2019. He previously [told BBC Radio 6](http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07ykny5) that the album was inspired in part by his experiences at Carnival in Brazil.
Elsewhere in the interview, O’Brien says Radiohead are looking at potential tour dates for 2018. Read the full piece in Esquire.
