Radiohead admits their last album might have alienated their fans.
The rockers only gave their album, The King of Limbs, one week's promotion before releasing it independently – a move they admit might have “alienated” fans.
Lead singer Thom Yorke told Rolling Stone magazine: "I can see why it's alienated people. I didn't realise it was on its own planet.
"It was amazing just to put the record out like that. But then it didn't feel like it really existed.
"But that was the consequence of what we chose to do. You can either get upset about it, or say, 'Well, that's not good enough.'"
The Creep singers also say they faced many obstacles when recording their album which was initially frustrating but worth it at the end.
Guitarist Johnny Greenwood added: "The brick walls we tended to hit were when we knew something was great, like Bloom, but not finished.
"We knew the song was nearly something. Then Colin [Greenwood] had that bass line and Thom started singing.
"Those things made it a hundred times better. The other stuff was just waiting for the right thing."
The band will continue their tour in the US before performing in Europe in July.
