Radiohead have told The Word magazine of their anger at EMI's decision to release a Greatest Hits album (older news) against their wishes.
Now signed to XL following their departure from the label that released all their albums bar their latest, In Rainbows, the band's Thom Yorke said of EMI's forthcoming release: "We haven't really had any hits so what exactly is the purpose?"
The singer continued:
"There's nothing we can do about it. The work is really public property now anyway, in my head at least. It's a wasted opportunity in that if we'd been behind it, and we wanted to do it, then it might have been good."
Yorke also criticised comments from EMI, suggesting Radiohead had asked for £10 million to re-sign with the label: "The idea what we were after so much money as to stretching the truth to breaking point... it was a clear indication that the relationship was over."
