Thom Yorke has spoken about his work ethic and future plans for Radiohead in an interview with actor Daniel Craig.

When asked what the future plan is for Radiohead in Interview magazine, Yorke replied: "God, I so wish I had a plan. [laughs] The only plan that we've had recently was to take a year off, which was something that Ed [O'Brien] wanted to do. Ed wanted to go live somewhere else and switch off." When Craig replied: "And have a life", Yorke responded: "Something like that, yeah. Just like, 'Hey, how about we have 12 months where we don't commit to anything at all?' – which is an interesting prospect."

Speaking about what the rest of Radiohead are up to, Yorke added: "They're all doing bits and bobs. Jonny has his film stuff as usual, which he really enjoys. Phil [Selway] is doing a record. I just can't ever stop. Even if I stop, I'm very excited about the idea of someone saying to me, 'How about you go do something for a few weeks?' Even if it's only for a couple of days, it's like, 'Yeah, great,' because there's always this mountain of unfinished chords and ideas and words. It's always exciting because if everything else is going to shit, I've always got that."

Thom Yorke's current project Atoms For Peace, which features producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, released its debut album 'Amok' on February 25. Yesterday, Nigel Godrich revealed that all of the group's music has been removed from Spotify with the producer claiming the streaming service is "bad for new music".
