Radiohead went back into the studio last year, promising to work on material for their new studio album.
Progress seemed to be going well, with the ever-secretive Oxford group refusing to give much away.
Drummer Philip Selway released an enthralling solo record via Bella Union last year, and recently sat down for a conversation with DrownedinSound.
The percussionist explained that work was “coming along nicely” on Radiohead's new album, and that the group were ready for another stint in the studio.
“We worked throughout the autumn up to just before Christmas,” he explained, “and now we’re just taking some time away for other projects.”
Continuing, Philip Selway insisted that the band would reconvene in March, and “we’ll make an assessment of where we are then, but we’ve been excited about what we’ve been doing so far. It’s by no means finished yet, so we’ve got a way to go. It’s been a productive time though.”
However the songwriter refused to be drawn on a potential release date. “I wouldn’t want to start to predict that kind of thing in a Radiohead schedule,” he said, “because you can find yourself six months down the line saying ‘I wish I hadn’t have said that actually!’”
