Radiohead have launched a new app called PolyFauna.

Writing about the app at Radiohead.com, Thom Yorke explained it as "an experimental collaboration between us (Radiohead) & Universal Everything, born out of 'The King of Limbs' sessions and using the imagery and the sounds from the song 'Bloom'. It comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious."

He then posted instructions on how to use the app, writing: "Your screen is the window into an evolving world. Move around to look around. You can follow the red dot. You can wear headphones." The app can be downloaded through Radiohead.com.

Last month, Radiohead's Colin Greenwood said that Radiohead's plans for a new album are "up in the air" as members of the band focus on side projects. Greenwood spoke to Drowned In Sound and revealed that he and his fellow Radiohead members are looking forward to making new music together but admitted that they are enjoying some time at home as the dust settles from touring their last album, 'The King Of Limbs'.

Quizzed on current activity in the Radiohead camp, Greenwood says: "It's all up in the air at the minute. Thom's just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he's having some quiet time. I'm sorry to be vague but we're all just taking it easy at the moment. Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It's like that."

Maintaining that live shows remain a long way off, Greenwood continues, "I wish I could say we were going to start work and put something out then spend 12 months on the road touring but we're just enjoying being at home right now. We had the best time when spent the last two years touring 'The King Of Limbs'. We all really enjoyed that. It was a really positive time. We definitely want to do it all again but we've just got to give it some time for the dust to settle. What I'm trying to say is everyone's very happy and positive and looking forward to the next adventure."
