Radiohead will start work on their follow-up to 2011’s ‘The King of Limbs’ this fall

Radiohead have taken roughly a year off of touring and recording new music, but that’s all about to change. According to Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, he and his band mates will enter the studio in September and start recording their much-anticipated new album.

Speaking on the BBC (via NME), Greenwood stated, “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding.”

Radiohead’s last album, “The King of Limbs,” dropped in 2011, and after touring in support of that release, members took a break to work on individual projects. Radiohead singer Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich took the downtime to collaborate with supergroup Atoms for Peace, which also features Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea and Mauro Refosco in the group. Greenwood used the time to write some movie scores.

Yorke told Rolling Stone in April 2013 that he wasn’t sure when Radiohead would start work on a new album. When asked about new tunes, he replied, “No, I don’t know, really. We said a year, but I’m sure it’ll probably be slightly longer than that, ’cause I am actually going to have to have a break. For three days. (Laughs.)”
