    Philip Selway Talks to Billboard/Reuters About "Familial," His Solo Debut Album
    Kevin Westenberg

    Philip Selway's solo debut album, Familial, is due out at the end of the month, on Nonesuch in North America and on Bella Union elsewhere. Selway spoke with Billboard magazine's Micky Noonan for an interview that was also published via Reuters. Noonan refers to "the album's pared-down, acoustic sound," about which Selway says: "It's a world apart from what I do in Radiohead."

    In the interview, Selway discusses the origin of his solo work, his process for creating the tunes, signing on collaborators like fellow drummer Glenn Kotche, and future plans for Radiohead. He also has kind words to say about releasing the album on Nonesuch and the fellow artists he joins in doing so. "My overriding sense of signing with Nonesuch is that they're music lovers and they have an amazing roster," he tells Billboard; "it felt like a very good home for the music."

    You can read the complete interview at billboard.com and reuters.com.

    Familial is now available for pre-order on vinyl and CD in the Nonesuch Store with a free instant download of the album's opening track, "By Some Miracle." Pick up a copy now in the Nonesuch Store.
