Radiohead: ‘We might throw out new album’

Drummer Phil Selway admits 'it's all up in the air at the moment'

Radiohead have announced that they could “throw out” their forthcoming new album and “head back to the drawing board”.

Set to resume sessions for their eighth studio effort on Monday (September 27), drummer Phil Selway admitted that the group would be taking stock of all of the progress they’ve made so far.

“We’ve been working on material on and off for a year now,” he told The Canadian Press. “We’re basically taking stock on Monday and seeing what we need to do with the material to move it to those final stages.”


He added: “We might get back together on Monday and after discussing stuff we might just throw this all out and say maybe we need to go back to the drawing board. Who knows, as I say, it’s all up in the air at the moment.”

As previously reported, bassist Colin Greenwood revealed that the band had recently finished another group of songs and were thinking about how they would release them.

The follow-up to 2007’s ‘In Rainbows’ is due for release later this year.
