Radiohead Will Reconvene This Summer

This summer band will "decide then what we do next," as Johnny Greenwood states.

Last we heard from Radiohead, via Colin Greenwood, the band was still taking it easy following a lengthy world tour in support of "The King of Limbs." In a recent interview with Nashville Cream (via Consequence of Sound), Colin's brother Jonny has offered a new, more exciting update.

According to Jonny, the band is "meeting up at the end of the summer, and we'll make a plan" for their ninth studio album. "But, you know, we're a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we'll decide then what we do next," he added.

In the interim, Jonny plans to follow up his recent appearance at Knoxville's Big Ears Festival with additional orchestral performances alongside the London Contemporary Orchestra. He's also scored Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film, "Inherent Vice."

Something new from Radiohead? About time.

    Good to hear. They are one of the few bands (along with the Beatles, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, and Jimi Hendrix) with a perfect discography.
    Better than rushing it - As far as I know the only album that was ever rushed was their debut, and compared to the rest of their discography, its probably for the better they take their time, regardless of how long... Surely OP will deliver...
    No one was standing still, all these new inspirations of them will make a godly album
    I have high hopes for the next record. Everyone's been doing solo projects to get everything they can't do in Radiohead out of their systems, so it'll probably be a lot more focused than TKOL. And the last time Thom did a solo album before an RH release, we got In Rainbows, which was great, so maybe he won't **** everything up with 15 layers of drums this time.
    saw him last weekend in Knoxville, great performances of "Loop" and "Self-portrait with Seven Fingers"
