Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead's collaboration with the Australian Chamber Orchestra is set to be revealed when the orchestra tours Europe later this year.

Greenwood collaborated with the orchestra on a piece called 'Water' in 2013 and the tour will be fan's first opportunity to hear the work. 'Water' will be played alongside material from Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Haydn.

Pitchfork reports that there are currently no plans to release a recorded version of their work together and that the Australian Chamber Orchestra will continue through Europe and on to Australia later in the year.

In a press release, Greenwood said, "I loved every second of being around these players. They were enthusiastic, patient, energetic and enormously musical. Just overhearing them rehearse a Shostakovich string quartet really floored me: nothing beats being in a small room with a bunch of players like this. And they really do go surfing afterwards!"

He added, "I wrote and rehearsed about twice as much music as there is in the final piece. It's a great feeling being able to edit things down like that. And as often as the workshops showed up ideas as not working, they also rescued promising half-ideas. The whole experience was very inspiring."

Meanwhile, Greenwood recently revealed that he is emailing song ideas to Thom Yorke ahead of Radiohead reconvening in September.

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.
