Radiohead have revealed that they have finished another group of songs for their forthcoming new album.

In an essay for Index On Censorship, bassist Colin Greenwood also explained that the band are thinking about how they will release them.

"We have just finished another group of songs," he wrote. "And have begun to wonder about how to release them in a digital landscape that has changed again."

He added: "It seems to have become harder to own music in the traditional way, on a physical object like a CD, and instead music appears the poor cousin of software, streamed or locked into a portable device like a phone or iPod."

Later in the essay, Greenwood also admitted that while he enjoyed the success of the way the band released 2007's 'In Rainbows' through a 'pay what you like' scheme, he missed the way the music industry used to be.

"I understand that we have become our own broadcasters and distributors," he said. "But I miss the editorialisation of music, the curatorial influences of people like John Peel or a good record label. I liked being on a record label that had us on it, along with Blur, Beastie Boys and The Beatles."

As previously reported, guitarist Ed O'Brien revealed the group had almost completed their new album and are looking to release it by the end of the year.
