Radiohead Hope to Tour Behind New Album Next Year
According to a rough translation of Greenwood’s recent interview with Russia’s Silver Rain radio station, the guitarist said the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs is complete, but the band is still fiddling with it. Greenwood also mentioned the band’s hopes to tour behind the album in the coming year.
However, Greenwood has since responded to Consequence of Sound’s report on the interview, indicating some of his meaning got lost in translation. He clarified that while the band has made significant headway on the new album, they want to go over and consider their progress thus far. He also reaffirmed that he hopes to tour next year, but nothing is set in stone yet.
Previously, photos have surfaced of the English rockers in the studio, working with longtime producer Nigel Godrich on their ninth LP. Drummer Philip Selway most recently said the band hoped to complete work on the album this fall.
In the meantime, Greenwood will soon release Junun, a collaborative album with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and the Indian music collective the Rajasthan Express. The album is due out Nov. 13 via Nonesuch Records. It coincides with the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed documentary of the same name, which is available for streaming now.
