In a year where Radiohead spent most of the time touring, news about an upcoming Radiohead album would be too good to be true. Then again, here’s some good news. Radiohead are determined to work on album #8 after the tour.
Radiohead have announced exclusively to 6 Music that they’re in the process of writing a new album. After losing to Elbow for the Mercury Music Prize on Tuesday night (9 September) they told 6 Music they’d taken time out of playing live to put new tracks down and would be heading to the studio in the near future.
Colin Greenwood said they’d be heading back into the studio when they’d completed their current world tour: “We’ve finished the main bulk of it and we’re off to Japan in a couple of weeks to finish it off.”
And fully enthused about writing new stuff, Ed O’Brien chimed in: “We’re still talking about doing some stuff and we’re really excited about it. First we came off tour to do some writing and we wanted to just carry on doing it because it was so brilliant.”
