The last time we’ve heard anything about Radiohead’s eight studio album was in September, when Colin Greenwood said that the band were set to return to the studio after their world tour. Radiohead’s management hinted that new work is not expected anytime soon.
At the Midem music conference in Cannes, France, one of Radiohead’s managers, said the ‘In Rainbows’ follow-up was at an “embryonic” stage. Talking to BBC News Brian Message said, “The first step in the process is that they’ve got to make some music that they’re proud of. There are no plans until the boys come back and say: ‘We’ve got something we like here.’”
Message, who also works for Faithless said that he had “no idea” how it would be released, referring to the ‘pay-what-you-want’ model for the current album. Faithless however are considering ‘doing a Radiohead’: “Faithless have got enough financial resources to do it themselves, which is what Radiohead did. I’d hope they’d be radical about the decisions they make.”
