Radiohead go back in the studio

Work resumes on their new album

Radiohead are back in the studio working on their new album.

The band spent some time last month working on songs for the follow-up to ‘Hail To The Thief’, and recently contributed a brand new track, ‘I Want None Of It’ to the War Child compilation ‘Help: A Day In The Life’.

Writing to fans online, guitarist Jonny Greenwood said the band are working on tracks and everything is “fun and well”.

He continued: “(Radiohead artist) Stanley (Donwood)’s here too, or at least in the shed out back, painting again. The rats have got in and eaten all his blue paint, and there’s blue rat shit everywhere: but at least he’s got a good dub cd to listen to while he’s working.”

Greenwood said he’s spent the last six months listening to “just dub reggae”. He wrote: “Six solid months of nothing but Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Ken Boothe, Junior Byles, Marcia Aitkin and hundreds of others. It’s to make a compilation which may or may not ever be completed – I hope I’m not just proving a point to myself – but either way, there’s been nothing else on my iPod since April.”

Radiohead’s new album is set for release next year.
