New Radiohead album in works

Radiohead are preparing to record a new album.

The 'Lotus Flower' band will regroup at the end of the summer to start work on their first new tracks since 2011.

Bass player Colin Greenwood told BBC Radio 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 the summer."

Radiohead - Colin, brother Johnny Greenwood, Thom Yorke, Phil Selway and Ed O'Brien - released their eighth album, 'The King Of Limbs', in 2011 and played a world tour last year.

The band are currently taking a break while the individual members work on different projects.

Perhaps the band will take a more commercial direction with their next album, as Thom has previously admitted 'The King of Limbs' divided their fanbase.

He said: "I can see why it's alienated people. I didn't realise it was on its own planet. It was amazing just to put the record out like that. But then it didn't feel like it really existed.

"But that was the consequence of what we chose to do. You can either get upset about it, or say, 'well, that's not good enough.'"
