Thom Yorke shared some interesting notes for “The Present Tense” on Twitter earlier today. “The Present Tense” is an unreleased song that debuted in 2009 and has been performed live by Thom Yorke during several solo appearances and with Atoms For Peace. The page contains a lot of different lyrics and words, including Britney Spears name (Thanks to reddit user whitepagolin for the screen capture), and gives you an interesting look at Thom’s songwriting process.
“The Present Tense” was first heard in 2008 during a soundcheck in Mansfield before a Radiohead concert, and in several other soundchecks during the In Rainbows tour, but has not been performed live by Radiohead. During a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) last year Thom was asked “Will we ever hear “The Present Tense” or “Burn The Witch”?”, to which he responded, “def the first one!” Radiohead are currently in the recording studio working on their ninth studio album. Could we see “The Present Tense” on Radiohead’s next album?
