Radiohead’s Phil Selway To Release Solo Album

The latest drummer to make a mad dash to the front of the stage, Radiohead’s Phil Selway has announced the upcoming release of Familial, his first solo album. Due out on August 30, the recording features guest appearances by Wilco drummer Glen Kotche, singer Lisa Germano, and bassist Sebastian Steinberg, formerly of Soul Coughing. Selway — who is currently working on Radiohead’s follow-up to 2007’s In Rainbows — has so far agreed to appear at a handful of UK festivals in September to promote the release. Stay tuned to see if any US dates ensue.
