Radiohead give new album and tour update

Jonny Greenwood says band 'haven't quite finished' the record

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has given fans an update on the band’s new album and future touring plans.

Writing on their official blog at, Greenwood explained that the band are currently “in the studio” but that they “haven’t quite finished” the follow-up to 2007’s ‘In Rainbows’ yet.

He referenced an interview he gave with Rolling Stone Italy recently, claiming he had been misquoted as saying that the album would contain 10 songs, and that they would play live soon.

“I think this Italian writer has, either through over-enthusiasm or frustration at all my non-committal answers, mistranslated me a little,” Greenwood explained. “In fact we haven’t quite finished the album – in the studio at the moment.”

It had been rumoured that Radiohead may play Glastonbury 2011, but Greenwood wrote that they had not considered any new live plans yet. “…Nor have we yet considered any touring,” he outlined. “The plan is to have no plan until the record is finished.”
