Already this year Radiohead have released a new album, The King Of Limbs, as well as a remix record, TKOL RMX 1234567, but it looks like the group isn't done just yet. According to RollingStone.com and the interview they conducted with the group's frontman, Thom Yorke, the band currently has new material written and plans to hit the studio this winter throughout December and January.
"We can get things together quite rapidly at the moment," said Yorke, mentioning a new song, called "Come To Your Senses", in particular. "We have this version of it. It's a five-minute rehearsal, but it has the essence of what we need."
"There are a few of those. It would be fun to have them ready when we go to play next year. I don't know how we would release them. It would be nice to make it all part of the flow and just enjoy it not think about it too much."
As well as the band's return to the studio being revealed, it was also confirmed that Radiohead intend to include Clive Dreamer, the drummer for Portishead, as a part of their lineup for their 2012 tour. Yorke seems enthusiastic about the two-drummer lineup and the extra layer it provides.
"In 'Bloom,' when Clive goes from the electro pads to the live kit, and my guitar shoots up an octave, I'm like, 'Wow!'" Yorke exclaimed. "When we came up with that, it was like, 'OK, we got it.'"
As for the tour itself, Yorke simply said "it will be sort of on and off, with big gaps."
