Radiohead have given a rare insight into the recording process of their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool - and the strange way the artwork was created.

The band spoke to author and poet Adam Thorpe - who is a friend of Colin Greenwood - for the Times Literary Supplement (a slightly left-field choice), giving insight into the critically-acclaimed new record.

Thorpe also witnessed the creation of the album artwork by Stanley Donwood. Donwood was set up in a barn near to the recording studio, with speakers wired between the two buildings so the artist could hear the process. He then reacted "in acrylic" to what he heard, "the results to be modified and manipulated on computer for the LP's cover."
