Radiohead’s Philip Selway has told fans the band’s best record is “still to come” after releasing new music for their PolyFauna app.

The app's soundtrack gives the first indication of what Radiohead's forthcoming album might sound like like. 

Selway’s comments follow the release of the band's overhauled app with new artwork and unheard music.

The soundtrack, which features Thom Yorke harmonising with the atmospheric beats, marks a departure from Radiohead’s typical sound.

The music on the app, which allows users to explore a mysterious, expressionistic world, is the first material the band have produced in three years since The King of Limbs in 2011.

Selway told BBC 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs: “There’s always that sense that our best record is still to come. There’s still a lot of creativity we can do together.

Guitarist Jonny Greenwood previously revealed the band would be heading back into the studio “after summer” to record their new album.

Greenwood said: “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding.”
