Radiohead don't tend to rush into things.
Each step the band takes is carefully considered, with their internal democracy meaning that each member is fully behind the decision.
With Atoms For Peace touring last year, any discussion of potential new material was off the table. Now, though, Radiohead can begin to look to the future.
Guitarist Jonny Greenwood sat down with Nashville Cream, and said hat the "slow moving animal" will begin to move over the following months. Radiohead will be "meeting up at the end of the summer" to "make a plan" for their next studio album.
"But, you know, we're a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we'll decide then what we do next."
However fans shouldn't get too confident. Colin Greenwood told DrownedinSound earlier this year that plans for new material were "up in the air".
"It's all up in the air at the minute" he said. "Thom's just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he's having some quiet time. I'm sorry to be vague but we're all just taking it easy at the moment. Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It's like that."
