Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood is trading “Fake Plastic Trees” for real ones — specifically, olive trees.
The guitarist has announced that he’s selling olive oil from the Italian farm where he “spend[s] all my time outside of music.”
“It’s only a few bottles, but I’m really proud of the final product, for all that this is what rockstarsofacertainage seem to drift into doing,” the 51-year-old Greenwood says, offering up Sting as an example of a fellow rock star of a certain age.
Greenwood continues, “It’s an addictive thing, though, harvesting and pressing this glorious fruit, and spending more and more time with Italian friends in this beautiful country.”
The oil comes in a bottle designed by frequent Radiohead visual collaborator Stanley Donwood. It’s available now to order via Radiohead’s W.A.S.T.E. HQ web store, though it currently only ships to U.K. addresses.
As for all his time spent with music, Radiohead still continues to be quiet, though Greenwood’s been busy with The Smile, his side project with Thom Yorke. He also just announced a collaborative album with Israeli musician Dudu Tassa, due out in June.
