“None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again. Not straight off. I mean, it’s just become a real drag. It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us…. we need to get away from it a bit.”
Why? Because the 3P is a perfect idea for any artist. Cheaper, quicker, more music to your fans more often, and 3 songs is just enough music to be able to make a significant statement while keeping it manageable and chunk-able for yourself. You could put out 3 political songs, 3 alt-country songs, 3 heavy numbers, lullabies, or whatever you choose to do you can position it to be more then just 3 regular songs. You can position it as a stand alone peice of art.
So although Thom York may have not literally said that he’s going to be putting out 3P’s, it’s interesting to see that he’s ready to change things up for the new world just like us.
