Radiohead writing In Rainbows follow-up

Radiohead have announced that they’re in the process of writing a new album.

In an interview with 6 Muisc from the BBC they said they have taken time out of playing live to put new tracks down and would be heading to the studio in the near future.

Bassist Colin Greenwood said they’d be heading back into the studio when they’d completed their current world tour: "We’ve finished the main bulk of it and we’re off to Japan in a couple of weeks to finish it off."

Fully enthused about writing new stuff, Ed O’Brien chimed in: "We’re still talking about doing some stuff and we’re really excited about it. First we came off tour to do some writing and we wanted to just carry on doing it because it was so brilliant."

No release date has been set yet.
