Published Oct 04, 2019Radiohead guitar player Ed O'Brien has shared his debut solo song. His first-ever solo track is called "Santa Teresa," and it promises to be a preview of his upcoming album.
The track comes under O'Brien's moniker EOB, with the song playing out as a five-and-half-minute instrumental that's definitely more than a little moody.
For "Santa Teresa," O'Brien teamed up with famed producer Flood, who's worked with everyone from Nine Inch Nails to Smashing Pumpkins to Depeche Mode.
Back in 2017, O'Brien discussed his upcoming solo album, revealing that he had been recording with Omar Hakim, Dave Okumu and Nathan East as a backing band, with Flood and Catherine Marks handling production duties.
"It started when we were living in Brazil," O'Brien said at the time. "It's not overtly Brazilian but there are definite themes. Without getting into it too much, going to Carnival in Rio was very inspiring. Rhythm and groove were a big part of it. I'm really enjoying it. It feels really right at the moment."
So far, further details surrounding O'Brien's as-yet-untitled album as EOB remain unclear, but he promises more "songs to come soon." The record will reportedly arrive via Capitol Records.
For now, hear "Santa Teresa," which has been paired with some seriously tripped-out visuals, below.
