Radiohead fans, rejoice! The band hasn't given up on the art of the long-play album, afer all, and after a nine-month break have made plans to re-enter the studio to start working on their ninth studio album, the folow-up to 2011's remarkable The King of Limbs.
Bassist Colin Greenwood confirmed the news in an interview with BBC 6 Music. "We're taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the ] end of summer," he said.
Fans will remember that the band played a few new tunes over the course of 2012, most notably the celebrated counter-harmony track "Identikit," which was played at both of the band's 2012 Coachella performances.
Meanwhile, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is getting ready to deliver the hotly anticipated new Atoms Fro Peace album, his collaboration with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist flea and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. The album, named Amok, is due out Feb. 26 on XL Recordings.
