Jonny Greenwood confirms plans for band to meet up later in the year
Radiohead will begin rehearsing and recording again in September, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has confirmed.
The band are currently pursuing solo projects and enjoying a break from official band duty following the end of touring their last album, ‘The King Of Limbs.’
Speaking on Mary Anne Hobbes’ BBC 6Music show earlier today (July 12), Greenwood was asked what Radiohead are up to at the moment and said, “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding.”
These comments correlate with what Greenwood said about the band regrouping this summer to discuss their next album in different interview earlier this year. Speaking then he said that the “slow moving animal” will gain life in the coming months.
Earlier this year, Jonny’s brother Colin Greenwood said that Radiohead’s plans for a new album were “up in the air” as members of the band focus on side projects.
Quizzed on current activity in the Radiohead camp, Greenwood said: “It’s all up in the air at the minute. Thom’s just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he’s having some quiet time. I’m sorry to be vague but we’re all just taking it easy at the moment. Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It’s like that.”
Jonny Greenwood spoke to NME earlier this year about guitar music, his classical influences and how he transitions between playing in Radiohead and writing alone.
