Following a handful of hints and a few official comments, Radiohead have confirmed booking studio time for the recording of a new album, marking a follow-up to 2011's "The King of Limbs."
Drummer Phil Selway was the one to drop the news_backup, telling NME that he has "absolutely no idea" how the new record will turn out sounding like. "And that's what keeps us all there until the end," he added.
Confirming the initial hints of a September studio entrance, Selway noted, "We are starting again in about a month's time. We've decided that now feels right to start making music and we've got the first week booked in together so we'll see how it goes."
In a separate BBC Radio interview, the drummer made quite an attention-grabbing statement, saying, "There's always that sense that our best record is still to come. There's still a lot creativity we can do together."
"We just took 18 months away from [the band]. When we get back together, we’ll be bringing new experiences," Selway explained (via Consequence of Sound). "That immediately brings a whole new energy and drive to it."
In related news_backup, Phil is releasing his solo album "Weatherhouse" on October 6 via Bella Union. Pre-orders are available over on iTunes, check out the preview clip below.
