The band also tell NME.COM they may test out new material on a European tour later this summer...

Radiohead have told NME.COM they will begin recording the follow-up to ‘AMNESIAC’ next month.

Guitarist Ed O’Brien and bassist Colin Greenwood attended the NME Carling Awards last week (February 25), where they won ‘Best Video’ for ‘Pyramid Song’.

Greenwood revealed that work will begin on new music in just a matter of weeks. He commented: “We’re going to start work again in April. We’re going to give it a bit more of a break than the last time.”

O’Brien added: “We don’t know what it will be like yet. You get asked this question before you make a record and we just don’t know. So many times you say it’s going to be the three minute pop song record, and other times you say it’s the prog rock record and it never turns out that way. We’ll just get back into rehearsal and then back into the studio and we’ll see what happens.”

NME.COM also understands that the band may experiment by recording parts for their album live when they play later this year. They have previously sampled themselves playing live and then used the results during the gig.

Greenwood told NME.COM: “We’re planning to play some shows in Europe in the summer and we’ll take it from there.”
