Pitchfork had this to say....

Radiohead Offer "2 + 2 = 5" Single In November; Greenwood's Bodysong Due Later This Month
Crunchiest Schoolhouse Rock number yet
[Posted Thursday, October 9th, 2003 05:00:00 Pitchfork Central Time]

Joshua Sharp and John L. Ferrer report:
Rocketing into the air on the propulsive force of their onion-powered jetpacks, Radiohead have announced the release date for their forthcoming single. Of course, they just wouldn't be the band who brought us "Creep" if they didn't deliver this news in an unorthodox and indisputably precarious manner. Come next month, the single(s) for "2 + 2 = 5" will hit UK shoppes all spread-out like on two CD's and a DVD to boot. Across the various formats, the single will feature a remix of "Myxomatosis" by Christian Vogel (perhaps better known as "a guy who makes experimental techno"), a demo version of "There There" (or is it "The Boney King of Nowhere"? Keep us on our toes, o kings of awkward pretension!), the original mix of "I Will", and a boneshockin' remix of "Scatterbrain" courtesy of electro-acoustic snugglebunny (and erstwhile tourmate of the emerald isle) Four Tet. The DVD will include clips for both the title track and for "Sit Down, Stand Up." The raindrops, the raindrops, the tracklist:

Disc one:
01 2 + 2 = 5
02 Myxomatosis (Christian Vogel remix)
03 There There [demo]

Disc two:
01 2 + 2 = 5
02 Scatterbrain (Four Tet remix)
03 I Will [first mix]

01 2 + 2 = 5
02 Sit Down, Stand Up

The single(s) are set for release in the UK on November 10th, presumably to coincide with the band's European tour. Remaining dates in the band's itinerary are as follows:

10-09 New York, NY - Madison Square Garden (w/ Low)
10-10 New York, NY - Madison Square Garden (w/ Low)
10-14 Brooklyn, NY - Brooklyn Academy of Music (dance production w/ Sigur Rs)
10-15 Toronto, Canada - Skydome (w/ Kid Koala)
10-17 New York, NY - Late Show with David Letterman
10-18 New York, NY - Late Night with Conan O'Brien
11-10 Oberhausen, Germany - Knig-Pilsener-Arena *
11-11 Brussels, Belgium - Vorst Nationaal *
11-13 Berlin, Germany - Berlin Arena (Velodrom) *
11-15 Hamburg, Germany - Color Line Arena *
11-17 Paris, France - Palais Omnisports *
11-19 Arnhem, Netherlands - Gelredome *
11-22 Manchester, England - Evening News Arena *
11-23 Newcastle, England - Telewest Arena *
11-24 Cardiff, England - Cardiff International Arena *
11-26 London, England - Earls Court *
11-27 London, England - Earls Court *
11-29 Nottingham, England - Nottingham Arena *
11-30 Glasgow, Scotland - S.E.C.C. *
12-01 Aberdeen, Scotland - A.E.C.C. *
12-03 Dublin, Ireland - The Point *
12-04 Dublin, Ireland - The Point *

* with Asian Dub Foundation

Yes, you read that correctly: the trend-bucking troubadours are actually playing back-to-back nights on both of New York's preeminent late-night talk shows, against all conventional booking norms. They're Radiohead, man, they can do that. Incidentally, fansite Green Plastic Radiohead informs us that Radiohead were the first-ever musical guests on Conan O'Brien's program ten years ago.

Now that the math portion of our examination is over, let's move straight on to biology, shall we? Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack to the film Bodysong will finally be released October 27th in the UK with the film following the first week in November, according to New Musical Express. The tracklist runs thusly:

01 Moon Trills
02 Moon Mall
03 Trench
04 Iron Swallow
05 Clockwork Tin Soldiers
06 Convergence
07 Nudnik Headache
08 Peartree
09 Splitter
10 Bode Radio/Glass Light/Broken Hearts
11 24 Hour Charleston
12 Milky Drops From Heaven
13 Tehellet

Bodysong tells "the story of an archetypal human life using images taken from all around the world and the last 100 years of cinema," according to the official website for the project. "Every possible depiction of the human life, from microscopic, medical [footage] to portraits and newsreels, from births to deaths, are cut to a powerful music track by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead to create a powerful and highly emotional film, with peaks of ecstasy and troughs of despair." So it's like School of Rock?

Speaking of ecstacy and despair, by all means check out the funny and fascinating article from the San Francisco-area East Bay Express, in which a fifth-grade teacher played a collection of Radiohead songs to a group of uninterested students, instructing them to draw what they were inspired by the music to create. Grim reapers, suicide booths, thousand-foot ice cream cones and self-loathing mountain climbers abound.
