bassist Colin Greenwood
gave an update on the band's new album, not exactly an exciting one as the band is seemingly taking it easy for now. But nevertheless, "the vibe is very much Oxford and all good!""It's all up in the air at the minute,"
Coling told Drowned in Sound
. "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!"
he added. "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."
The bassist concluded on an optimistic note, saying, "We definitely want to do it all again but we've just got to give it some time for the dust to settle."
Further asked if any fresh tunes are ready for the new album, a couple of which were reportedly recorded in Jack White
's studio, Greenwood replied: "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."
