I genuinely love it. The orchestral arrangement kicks ass and that riff is just killer. It’s the real Bond theme that never was. 

Honestly quite surprised by this. No one ever seems to mention it as a banger.

It's definitely a banger, but the new version is played and sung with different energy. The 95 versions play out with a sexy swagger. They have a snappy snake-like raunchy tastyness, and I really miss that.

I miss the days when Radiohead did extensive interviews breaking down the recording of each tracks. How can they not have told the story of True Love Waits?

Hmm!!  It is hard to tell what aspects of A Moon Shaped Pool being created could be included, but there may be, highly speculatively, the eventual release of some sort of docu-film, that would probably include live performances (the closest indication of anything existing of this nature is that concerts from 2018 have not been added to the landfill television page)!

Yes, there is speculation of a live show release from the last tour.  In the NA tour they had professional recorders.  I saw them at the Columbus show.  They might have canceled it but I would wager that if it will be released it will be in May.  If it isn't released in May then I assume whatever project they were doing was canceled.  

Said it before but Thoms live voice never comes across well on live recordings throughout an entire concert. Reckon they didn’t have enough recordings they were happy to release.

It’s weird as when you’re there it sounds great and when you listen back on a YouTube recording his voice is all over the place. There were also quite a few AMSP tracks he simply couldn’t sing live (burn the witch, decks dark, tinker...would even say he struggled with daydreaming but I don’t think that song worked live at all imho)

So here are the possible contenders for the next release?

(5, if ever) RH live from North America/2018 tour,  (2) a Thom/Nigel release, (3) a Kid A/Amnesiac reissue with or without tidbits, (1) Ed's solo album (overdue already), and (4) LP10 (a year out from now at least).

Anything else?  I feel like I'm forgetting something.  I have a hunch they won't use the North America recordings until much later--but I do hope they do find some good stuff there.

We could read something into this . . . . 

"It’s also something I’ve been conscious of from past records that Radiohead have done as well. When we did “Kid A” and “Amnesiac,” we did a lot of visual stuff that was really important to the music.  Like the blips—we did these 15-second, 20-seconds, 30-second bits and pieces—which to me, were almost important as what we were doing in the studio. So, I’ve become confused . . . . "  

So maybe it will just be the "Previously Unreleased Blips" Release.  (And one of them will be five minutes.  Just BECAUSE.)

Testifying when? Was this reported?

Here's the article it's from.  

And here's a snippet.

Radiohead member, father among those to testify at inquest into fatal 2012 stage collapse

By Erica Vella Digital Broadcast Journalist  Global News

An inquest into the death of Scott Johnson at a 2012 Radiohead concert is set to begin late this month, and an unnamed band member, as well as Johnson’s father, have agreed to testify in the proceedings.

Johnson, 33, was killed on June 16, 2012, when part of a massive stage structure crashed down just hours before Radiohead was due to perform at Downsview Park in north Toronto. Three others were injured.

The inquest will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 25, 2019 at the Coroner’s Court and will include testimony from 25 witnesses. “They are going to speak about the facts, what took place, what happened in the days and weeks preceding the actual collapse,” said Prabhu Rajan, chief counsel with the Chief Coroner of Ontario.
