Radiohead have revealed they are getting closer to finishing their new album.

The band have completed another song, ‘Bodysnatchers’, for their seventh LP – the follow-up to 2003’s ‘Hail To The Thief’.

In a message on the group’s official messageboard at www.radiohead.co.uk, guitarist Jonny Greenwood said: “We’re just finishing (Famous Last W’s) ‘Bodysnatchers’. ather (sic) good so far….better not turn my guitar down.”

Radiohead are set to headline this year’s V Festival, alongside Morrissey, which takes place between August 19-20 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.

However, Greenwood was unable to shed any light on further dates besides headlining the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival, which is scheduled for June 16-18 in Manchester, Tennessee.

Bonaroo (sic), and after/before that we are/aren’t playing at… I’m contractually forbibben (sic),” he cryptically wrote. “All over, though.”

Greenwood did give fans an insight into what he has been doing to fill in spare time during studio work, explaining: “Currently reading: It’s called ‘Jesus – magican (sic) or miracle’ or something and it’s very odd INDEED. Talks about how water into wine etc. we standard street magic of the time, according to contemporary roman writers…”, Radiohead fan site Ateaseweb.com reports.

V Festival weekend camping tickets cost £120, or £100 for both days without camping. Day tickets cost £58.50.
