Radiohead to Start Recording New Album Later This Year



Radiohead bass player Colin Greenwood says the bands plan to start work on their new album at the ‘end of summer’

Radiohead fans might not have to wait too much longer for new music from the bunch. According to bass player Colin Greenwood, the band will start working on their upcoming studio album towards the end of the summer. As Greenwood explains, the group will enter the studio after frontman Thom Yorke wraps up the promotional run for “Amok,” the new album from his side band, Atoms for Peace, which also brings together Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, percussionist Mauro Refosco and drummer Joey Waronker.

“We’re taking some time out whilst the…people are…doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of summer,” Greenwood told  BBC Radio 6 .

As for the Atoms for Peace project, “Amok” arrives in stores and online outlets on Feb. 26, and Yorke will be putting on three concerts in honor of the release over the next month. Each of the performances will offer DJ sets by Yorke and Godrich, as well as special guests Actress and Throwing Snow at the London gig on Feb. 22 and Shed and Anstam at the Berlin show on March 8. The final show will take place on March 14 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City, and specials guests for that show are pending.
