Thom Yorke has announced the release date of his brand new “dystopian” album – ANIMA – which will be accompanied by a Netflix “one-reeler” directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.

The Radiohead musician’s latest solo record (and the Netflix short) will become available online on Thursday 27 June, with the album hitting shops on Friday 19 July.

It was written by Yorke, and produced by Nigel Godrich, who worked on the majority of Radiohead’s albums.

The Netflix film is reportedly set to three songs from the album. Yorke has described it as “a motion picture, especially a cartoon or comedy”, which is “contained on one reel of film; popular especially in the era of silent films”.

A bonus track, named “(Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You For Coming)”, will only appear on the vinyl version. So fans will have to wait an extra three weeks to sample it.

Tracklisting for the album has been announced as follows:

1. “Traffic”
2. “Last I Heard (…He Was Circling The Drain)”
3. “Twist”
4. “Dawn Chorus”
5. “I Am A Very Rude Person”
6. “Not The News”
7.“The Axe”
8. “Impossible Knots”
9. “Runwayaway”

Yorke will play tour dates in mainland Europe in July, with shows booked in Paris, Frankfurt, Rome and more.
