Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno has said that he wants the band's next album to emulate Radiohead's 'OK Computer'.

Pizzorno, speaking in the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands now or available digitally, explained that the writing process for the follow-up to 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' is already well underway.

"Not necessarily the sound," Pizzorno explained, "but 'OK Computer', as a record that just makes you go, 'Wow' [is the inspiration]. I want to aim for something that's as incredible as that, just the feeling of being blown away that you get from that."

The guitarist said he can't wait to play tracks from the album live, adding: "I just want people to fucking come away from it going, 'Yep, great album. It's different, I love this. Let's go see it live. Thank you.' Then off we go again."

The Leicester band are set to headline the Isle Of Wight Festival and Scotland's RockNess in June. Pizzorno said he'd like the band to have some new material out before the shows.

Kasabian are in the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands today (January 12) or available digitally.

The issue previews the 60 most exciting albums of 2011, also featuring The Strokes, Glasvegas, Arctic Monkeys, Beady Eye, La Roux, Bombay Bicycle Club, Wild Beasts and 52 other acts, with in-the-studio reports and photos.
