The nine-track Earth features O'Brien on vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion and programming, while he also called upon an ensemble of musicians to contribute to the record, including Radiohead bandmate Colin Greenwood, Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, Laura Marling, David Okumu of The Invisible and more.

Polydor will release Earth on April 17.

Radiohead recently launched a digital archive called the Radiohead Public Library, taking in set recordings, rarities, videos and more from throughout the band's career.
