Radiohead are set to return to the studio in January to resume work on their next full-length album. They'll be continuing work from the Summer of 2009. Ed O'Brien made a comment on the band's web site saying:
“The vibe in the camp is fantastic at present, and we head off into the studio in January to continue on from the work we started last Summer .. I am so genuinely excited about what we’re doing, but for obvious reasons I can’t divulge anything more.. anyway we all love surprises don’t we? 10 years ago we were all collectively (that’s the band) in the land of Kid A .. and although hugely proud of that record, it wasn’t a fun place to be .. What’s reassuring now, is that we are most definitely a different band, which should therefore mean that the music is different too and that is the aim of the game….keep it moving.”
Radiohead's last album, In Rainbows, was released in 2007.
Thom Yorke most recently played a few solo shows in October with Flea and drummer Joey Waronker. This is what he does when he's not busy with post-Copenhagen-angst or working on the new Radiohead album.
