Radiohead will soon regroup to begin work on their ninth studio album, the followup to 2011’s The King of Limbs.
The news was first revealed by Colin Greenwood in an interview with Africa’s Mail & Guardian, where he was promoting the Children’s Radio Foundation. As Mail & Guardian wrote, “[Radiohead] are on a nine-month break until September when they will start work on their ninth album.”
Greenwood further confirmed the news in an interview with BBC 6 Music earlier today (via NME). “We’re taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer,” Greenwood explained.
Meanwhile, Greenwood is celebrating World Radio Day (which is today) with the launch of a pop-up radio station, which you can listen to at Tune In. His bandmates, Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich, are gearing up to release the full-length debut from Atoms For Peace, Amok, due out February 26th via XL Recordings.
