Radiohead 'to start recording next album in September,' guitarist confirms
The legendary band hasn't released a studio album since the The King Of Limbs in 2011
Radiohead are heading back into the studio to create their ninth studio album, the band have confirmed.
The group’s last album instalment, The King Of Limbs, was released in 2011, after which the members took a break to pursue individual projects.
Speaking on BBC 6 Music's Mary Anne Hobbes Show on Saturday, guitarist Jonny Greenwood said: “We're going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding.”
Speculation over whether the musicians would create new material intensified earlier this year when Greenwood hinted in April that the band would regroup in the summer.
He told the Nashville Scene: “We’re meeting up at the end of the summer, and we'll make a plan.
“But, you know, we’re a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we’ll decide then what we do next.”
According to NME, Jonny’s brother Colin had previously said that plans for the album were “up in the air.”
Radiohead singer Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich had spent the break collaborating with supergroup Atoms for Peace, which also counts Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and Mauro Refosco as members.
Yorke was asked by Rolling Stones in April 2013 when Radiohead might get together for a new album.
He replied: “No, I don't know, really. We said a year, but I'm sure it'll probably be slightly longer than that, 'cause I am actually going to have to have a break. For three days. [Laughs.]
“I really haven't got a clue, which I quite like. We didn't, like, say, ‘Fuck you, I'll see you whenever.’ But it was quite exciting to actually finally decide to take a proper, proper break. We'd never really done that, not by choice.”
He said he had gone straight from Radiohead into Atoms of Peace and would “need a break at some point.”
It looks like that break’s almost over.
