Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood has said that he has been emailing Thom Yorke ideas for new songs for the band.

Speaking in The Sunday Times, Greenwood commented: "I was emailing stuff to Thom last night, actually, but it's not the same, is it? You don't see him tutting." When asked if there was a release date in mind for their next album, Greenwood explained: "No! Release? No, no idea. No," adding: "Our plan is to start making music soon. We've just got to get the inertia back."

Greenwood previously said Radiohead will begin rehearsing and recording again in September. The band are currently pursuing solo projects and enjoying a break from official band duty following the end of touring their last album, 'The King Of Limbs.'

Speaking on Mary Anne Hobbes' BBC 6Music show earlier this month, Greenwood was asked what Radiohead were up to at the moment and said, "We're going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding."

These comments correlate with what Greenwood said about the band regrouping this summer to discuss their next album in different interview earlier this year. Speaking then he said that the "slow moving animal" would gain life in the coming months.

Earlier this year, Jonny's brother Colin Greenwood said that Radiohead's plans for a new album were "up in the air" as members of the band focus on side projects.

Jonny Greenwood spoke to NME earlier this year about guitar music, his classical influences and how he transitions between playing in Radiohead and writing alone.
