Radiohead are set to resume recording their next album in January.

According to guitarist Ed O'Brien, the Oxford band are looking forward to reconvening in their studio next, but was coy as to what material they are working on.

"The vibe in the camp is fantastic at present, and we head off into the studio in January to continue on from the work we started last summer," he wrote on the band's Dear Air Space blog, adding that the sessions were very collaborative between the band's members.

"I am so genuinely excited about what we’re doing, but for obvious reasons I can’t divulge anything more," he explained. "Anyway we all love surprises don’t we? Ten years ago we were all collectively (that’s the band) in the land of 'Kid A' and although hugely proud of that record, it wasn’t a fun place to be. What’s reassuring now, is that we are most definitely a different band, which should therefore mean that the music is different too and that is the aim of the game. Keep it moving."

O'Brien also used his post to attack the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, attended by his bandmate Thom Yorke for failing to tackle the issues raised.

"I haven’t spoken to Thom yet, but judging by his entries here and reading today’s papers the outcome of Copenhagen is a bloody disgrace," he wrote.

However deciding that his post was a bit too downbeat as an end of year message, the guitarist returned later to recommend ten films over Christmas, which are as follows:

1. Harold And Maude
2. Sideways
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
4. Where Eagles Dare
5. Son Of Rambow
6. This is England
7. Being There
8. The Year of Living Dangerously
9. Finding Nemo
10. Moonraker


Justifying his selections O'Brien declared: "There has to be a Bond film there and although definitely not the best I have a bit of a soft spot for Moonraker, I always loved the Rio and South American scenes so much so that when it came out as a kid I went on my own and watched three consecutive matinee showings of it.

Signing off he wished fans: "a peaceful and happy Christmas in spite of all the current madness, and good luck to us all in 2010".
