We spy with our little eyes, a Radiohead comeback!
The English rock band is said to be “creeping” back to the studio for a new album as Radiohead drummer Philip Selway told NME in an interview that the band wanted to finish the recording for their upcoming 9th studio album this fall.
Selway’s confirmation came after guitarist Jonny Greenwood told BBC’s David Prever at Drivetime last November that they were working on their follow-up album to 2011’s “The King Of Limbs”. At that time, the band was still in the early stages of working on the new album, so no substantial information about the album emerged.
Greenwood later told Dutch music website 3voor12 in July this year that some songs in the forthcoming record won’t be very new, as they will include a reworked version of “Lift,” a track they have been performing since 1996.
On top of Greenwood and Selway confirming to the music sites that they are working on their upcoming album, composer Robert Ziegler, who worked with the band on “The King of Limbs”, also recently posted photos of Radiohead members from inside a studio on his Twitter.
Through the now-deleted tweet, he wrote:
Lovely session @AIRStudios @rpoonline @radiohead @JnnyG @laurenlaverne @BBC6Music @KermodeMovie
Zieger’s photos show an orchestra setup and features Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, and Nigel Godrich having a conversation in a studio.
Fans can surely expect something a little different from their upcoming LP as Selway said that they are trying to “change the underlying approach to making music”.
For so long we kind of played exclusively with each other and that takes you so far, so I suppose from album to album you try to push yourself beyond your comfort zone.
“We kind of change record to record, try and change the underlying approach to making music,” added Selway.
Who’s looking forward to this, hmm?
