Philip Selway discusses new Radiohead album progress

The band will reenter the studio next month to continue work on the follow-up to 2011's 'The King Of Limbs'

Philip Selway has discussed the progress of the new Radiohead album, saying that the LP is “coming along nicely” but that it might not be released this year.

Speaking to Drowned In Sound, the band’s drummer commented: “It’s all coming along nicely… We worked throughout the autumn up to just before Christmas, and now we’re just taking some time away for other projects.”

He went on to say that they will restart the process next month. “We’ll get back to it in March and we’ll make an assessment of where we are then, but we’ve been excited about what we’ve been doing so far. It’s by no means finished yet, so we’ve got a way to go. It’s been a productive time though.”

When asked about a possible release date, Selway explained: “I wouldn’t want to start to predict that kind of thing in a Radiohead schedule because you can find yourself six months down the line saying “I wish I hadn’t have said that actually!”

In November 2014, Jonny Greenwood gave an update on the progress of the album, stating that they were trying a number of different approaches. “I’m late, they’ve all gone there now,” he said. “We’re currently playing and recording and it’s fun to see everyone again, it’s been a long time coming, we’ve been waiting all of us for a long time.”

Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich went on to post a picture of Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood as they worked on the new album.
