It was recently reported that Radiohead had spent the last few months in the studio working on their currently untitled and unannounced ninth studio album, and according to Jonny Greenwood, the sessions were fairly productive to say the least. A member on the Radiohead sub-Reddit spotted an interview with Greenwood via Russian radio station Silver Radio, in which Greenwood said, “We have finished recording of the new album but we keep reevaluation the work we’ve done.”
Speaking about the currently untitled new album, Greenwood offered up some more exciting news: “We hope we’ll get it right soon, and after that we’ll start planning the next year’s tour.” The band’s drummer, Phil Selway, had already said that the band were hoping to finish their ninth studio album this fall, but even then this comes as somewhat of a pleasant surprise. According to Consequence of Sound, Selway also hinted that the album could be the first album from Radiohead to feature outside collaborators.
There’s no other news about the record, but just knowing that it’s getting closer and closer is more than enough, especially considering it’ll be the band’s first since 2011’s The King of Limbs. A few photos of the band recording with an orchestra surfaced online last month, so one would expect it’ll be a grand return, at least.
