Radiohead drummer Phil Selway has insisted that the band's best work is "still to come".

In this week's issue of NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, Selway revealed that the band are set to begin sessions on the follow-up to their 2011 album 'The King Of Limbs' this month and said that they felt it was the right time to "start making music" together again.

Now, in an interview with BBC 6 Music, the drummer has spoken further about the group's ambitions for the new LP. "There's always that sense that our best record is still to come," he said. "There’s still a lot creativity we can do together." You can listen to the interview in full below.

Selway will release his new solo album 'Weatherhouse' on October 6. Speaking in this week's NME, the drummer is asked whether he can make any predictions as to what a new Radiohead album may end up sounding like. "I have absolutely no idea," he says. "And that's what keeps us all there until the end."

"We are starting again in about a month's time. We've decided that now feels right to start making music and we've got the first week booked in together so we'll see how it goes," he adds.

Earlier this week Radiohead updated their PolyFauna app with new music and visuals.
