Any Radiohead news is big news, even non-news about the band’s non-existent ninth studio album. So, here it goes: In an interview with Drowned in Sound, Colin Greenwood offered an updated on the band’s follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs. It went as follows:
DiS: Finally, moving onto Radiohead, are there any plans for a new album in the foreseeable future?
Colin Greenwood: I don’t really know. 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. 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. I wish I could say we were going to start work and put something out then spend twelve months on the road touring but we’re just enjoying being at home right now. We had the best time when spent the last two years touring The King Of Limbs. We all really enjoyed that. It was a really positive time. We definitely want to do it all again but we’ve just got to give it some time for the dust to settle.
DiS: Are there any new songs ready for the next record? I read that you’d recorded a couple of tracks in Jack White’s studio last year.
Colin Greenwood: I don’t know. I think we’d have to revisit them and finish things. I think generally we work best when we’re all together for a long period of time. But then I say something like that and think back to when we recorded ‘Lucky’ in under a day at some studio in South London so I don’t know… What I’m trying to say is everyone’s very happy and positive and looking forward to the next adventure.
DiS: Hopefully that next adventure will be sooner rather than later.
Colin Greenwood: Absolutely!
OK, see you in 2015.
