At this rate, Thom Yorke may have a book’s worth of tweets before the rest of us get a new Radiohead album.

Yorke, saying overdubs were happening in Radiohead’s studio, today shared photos of artwork and lyrics from the band’s vaults. Referring to longtime visual collaborator Stanley Donwood, his tweet was characteristically cryptic: “Stanley & me going thru15years of discarded words & pictures..!while overdubs happen in Radiohead studio.2nd day only.”

Scroll down for the images, which include alternate lyrics to “A Wolf at the Door,” from 2003′s Hail to the Thief.

Yorke’s latest social media activity comes less than two days after he set off rampant speculation by sharing an image of an unspecified white vinyl record beside artwork resembling Donwood’s. Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood said this summer, “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding.” He had previously acknowledged taking “a year off from Radiohead.”

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway has a new solo album, Weatherhouse, due out on October 7. Greenwood keeps announcing new contemporary-classical performances, including one in Manchester, England, next month, which is set to include unreleased material. He presumably won’t just be reading tweets.
