Alternative rockers Radiohead will start recording their ninth studio album in the next few weeks
Radiohead have taken plenty of time off as of late– 18 months to be exact. Now, the beloved Thom Yorke-fronted alternative rock band has announced that it plans to return to the studio to record its upcoming ninth studio album in as soon as the next few weeks.
According to Radiohead drummer Philip Selway, the band already has studio time booked. “We’ve decided that now feels right to start making music and we’ve got the first week booked in together so we’ll see how it goes,” Selway told NME.
While the news that Radiohead is finally getting to work on new music is a positive, fans won’t know much of what to expect from the new tunes for now. When asked about the sound of the upcoming album, Selway stated, “I have absolutely no idea. And that’s what keeps us all there until the end.”
Radiohead haven’t pinned down a release date for the upcoming album, either, but Selway currently has a solo album available called “Weatherhouse.”
