Radiohead‘s guitarist anti-rockstar Jonny Greenwood is recently collaborated with Israeli singer Dudu Tasa on the new single, “What a Day“.  The song is streaming over HERE (browser warning: IE only).  It’s good, but not like Jonny’s usual fare (i.e. – it’s not like the more experimental Bodysong or There Will Be Blood).

Also in recent directly Radiohead news… EMI/Capitol is re-issuing triple-disc versions (2CD+DVD) of the band’s first three albums (Pablo Honey, The Bends, and OK Computer).  There are no previously unreleased tracks on any of these issues, but it will be a more cohesive place for all of the b-sides rather than the glut of import singles and EPs that the band released as “tweeners.”  They’re due out in late March.

The original singles up through those on Amnesiac are also being repressed in 180 gram 12″ vinyl.  The one for the Drill EP was the one I sprung for… I’d only heard it before in crappy mp3.  It’ll be nice in the analog, backwards technology re-issuance.  They’re due out in late April.
