Radiohead will meet up at the end of the summer to make plans to record their ninth studio album, according to guitarist Jonny Greenwood.
All has been relatively quiet in camp Radiohead since the release of their most recent album, 2011's outstanding eight song collection The King of Limbs, as Thom Yorke concentrated his efforts on his side-project Atoms For Peace alongside Flea and Nigel Godrich. This brief respite looks set to change soon, however, as Greenwood gave an interview to Nashville Cream in which he intimated that the band will shortly kick back into action.
Greenwood said that Radiohead's members will meet up "at the end of the summer to make a plan" for their next record. "But, you know, we're a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we'll decide then what we do next", he added.
Jonny's brother Colin had previously stated to Drowned In Sound that the band's plans for the next record were "up in the air".
"It's all up in the air at the minute", Colin Greenwood said. "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! It's like that."
The latest statement from Jonny Greenwood, though, suggests that the Radiohead assembly line is warming up at least. And we can't bloody wait.
