RADIOHEAD will “definitely” play UK shows next year, as the group remain on course to finish their new album.

Radiohead have been working on the follow-up to ‘Amnesiac’ since the summer, in LA and Oxford.

Singer Thom Yorke recently told NME.COM to expect the “exact opposite” of their last two albums.

In a new interview, Ed O’Brien explained how the album is progressing.

“We’ve done about four weeks.” He told XFM. “Two weeks in Los Angeles and two in our own studio in Oxford. It’s sounding good. A lot of energy, really good. It just feels really good. As I always say it’s gonna be an album of three minute pop songs. That’s what they always say but that’s what it is this time.”

Once the album is completed, Radiohead plan to tour again, but this time “definitely” play in the UK, according to the guitarist.

This year they have refrained from playing shows at home, instead testing new material on the road across Spain and Portugal.
