Radiohead singer Thom Yorke has insisted the band will not split with the release of his first solo album.
Radiohead's Thom Yorke said the album was "fun and quick" to make
The Eraser has been produced by Nigel Godrich, responsible for Radiohead albums including The Bends, OK Computer and 2003's Hail To The Thief.
In an e-mail to Radiohead's fan organisation Waste, Yorke said he had been "itching to do something like this for ages".
But he added that his solo ambitions had not outpaced Radiohead's.
"The band now touring, writing new stuff and getting to a good space, so I want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever, splitting up blah blah," wrote the musician.
"This was all done with their blessing. And I don't wanna hear that word solo. Doesn't sound right," added Yorke.
Radiohead recently embarked upon a European tour, but a concert in Amsterdam last week was cancelled following the death of drummer Phil Selway's mother.
