In the beginning of 2007 people started talking about new material from The Radio Dept. There was even a rumour going on that they were working on two albums simultaneously and that both would be released in May the same year. In other words, two albums merely one year after the release of the previous album ”Pet Grief”. Those who had followed the band for a few years and knew how they work probably suspected this would not happen.
"Freddie and the Trojan Horse" is a first taste of their upcoming album ”Clinging to a scheme” due to be released on September 10. The new songs are said to be influenced by minimalistic post-punk, krautrock, repetitive "motorik" beat and ambient noise. We'll, hopefully, know if that's true on September 10.
The Radio Dept. "Freddie and the Trojan Horse" (LAB105, 3-track CD Single) is out on June 4.

"It’s time – once again and more clearly than before – to show our standpoint. ’Freddie and the Trojan Horse’ is about the untruthfulness of the Swedish right-wing government and how the leading party seized power by portraying itself as supportive of the workers.” THE RADIO DEPT. April 17th, 2008.
