Thom Yorke Muses About Radiohead's End, Black Sabbath Reveal Album Cover

Black Sabbath's '13' hits stores June 10.

In a recent interview with actor Alec Baldwin, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke spoke about a recent conversation he had with Paul McCartney in which Sir Paul commented that even The Beatles got tired of being The Beatles.

“Were there times when you guys sat there and looked at each other and said, I think we’re done?” Baldwin asked.

“I do that frequently,” responded Yorke, before admitting that the rest of the band are more or less waiting on him to be the one that makes the eventual call.

Yorke added that it wouldn’t be musical differences that would eventually drive the band apart, but rather “just stresses of life, whatever.”

In the meantime, Yorke has been keeping busy with his new band, Atoms For Peace, who have just released their debut album, Amok. The band features Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea along with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

Still though, Radiohead are planning to hit the studio by the end of the year to work on their ninth studio album and the follow-up to 2011’s King Of Limbs, so it’s looking like it might be a while before Yorke decides to finally put the band to rest.

And in other rock and roll news, Black Sabbath have unveiled the album cover for 13, their highly anticipated reunion album with Ozzyt Osbourne.

The band had provided a 27-second teaser clip featuring very small snippets of music from the album, with Ozzy belting out the lyrics: “Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.”

13 is set to hit record stores on June 10th and will feature Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk in place of original Sabbath stick-smith Bill Ward, who refused to take part in the reunion after contractual disputes.

Track titles include End Of The BeginningGod Is DeadEpicDear FatherAge Of Reason and Methademic.
