Radiohead have almost finished their new album - and are looking to releae it by the end of the year.

The band have been working on the follow-up to 2007's 'In Rainbows' for almost a year. Now guitarist Ed O'Brien has revealed that they are almost done - and reckons it could be the band’s best yet.

He told Adam Buxton's BBC 6Music show: "We're in the heart of the record. It's genuinely exciting. It's very different from what we did last time. It’s really nice to be doing this. It's so good to be making music with the band that you feel is still as good as it's ever been."

The guitarist could not confirm any schedule for release, but said he wanted to see the record out sooner rather than later.

He stated: "Ideally, it would be great if it came out sometime this year. It has got to. I hope so. We’re at the finishing line. When you're making a record, a film, writing a book for ages and ages you think the finishing line is miles away. Now it feels it's in touching distance. But of course, it being a creative process, at the last bit also, you have bursts of energy, you achieve a lot of things in a small period of time and then you’re nearly there… it might slow down. But yeah, hopefully it will be a matter of weeks."

The band are believed to be working with long-standing producer Nigel Godrich.

The group's last recorded output were two one-off tracks last year, 'Harry Patch (In Memory Of)' and 'These Are My Twisted Words'.
