New music from Radiohead might be on the way!
Guitarist Johnny Greenwood told Mary Anne Hobbes’ of the BBC 6Music show that the band will be heading to the studio in September to record new music.
“We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding,” Greenwood said.
The group’s last album together was 2011’s King Of Limbs, and since they finished touring for its release, they’ve all been pursuing solo projects. Specifically, Thom Yorke has been touring with his side project Atoms For Peace, a supergroup of sorts that includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich among others.
Earlier in the year, Johnny’s brother Colin Greenwood who plays bass for Radiohead, said plans were up in the air.
“It’s all up in the air at the minute. Thom’s just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he’s having some quiet time,” Colin said. “I’m sorry to be vague but we’re all just taking it easy at the moment. Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It’s like that.”
Does this mean a new album? New songs? Could a record feasibly come together before the end of the year? We have so many more questions! Guess we’ll wait till September and see if any other reports of new music and recording sessions begin to surface.
