Radiohead are at it again, this time already recording material that looks like the follow up to their just released (sort of) The King of Limbs album.

Speaking with BBC 6 Music, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood said the band was in the studio and already recording again.The future looks unplanned and spontaneous, which might be the best thing that Radiohead can do at this point.

"We are recording with Radiohead and rehearsing, playing and making music and working out what to do. We have stopped planning ahead very far, just making music and wondering where to go next and what to do," he said in an terview with Matt Everitt.

Jonny also talked about his Norwegian Wood soundtrack, due out on March 7. It's the score for a Japanese film adaptation of Haruki Murakami's 1987 novel. Jonny will release the soundtrack right before Norwegian Wood's theatrical release on Mar. 11. Check out a preview of the film on the Spacelab Media Player.

Jonny will also be be creating the film score for the new Tilda Swinton film We Need to Talk About Kevin due out later this year.

The film is directed by Lynne Ramsay, and Jonny Greenwood had good things to say about her work. "It's an amazing film she has made, a serious subject matter, but a good chance to play with new instruments. We used this harpist called Jean Kelly, who plays harp strung with metal strings, so it sounds like nothing you have heard, wonderful."
