Best of Radiohead still to come says Selway

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway has vowed the band’s best work is yet to come.

They’re gearing up to begin recording the follow-up to 2011’s The King Of Limbs after taking time away to work on other projects.

Asked how their ninth album might sound, Selway tells NME: “I have absolutely no idea – and that’s what keeps us all there until the end.”

He adds: “We’re starting in about a month’s time. We’ve decided that now feels right to start making music, and we’ve got the first week booked in together. We’ll see how it goes.”

In another interview Selway tells the BBC: “There’s always that sense that out best record is still to come. There’s still a lot of creativity we can do together.”

The drummer launches his solo album Weatherhouse on October 6. Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood recently said the band wouldn’t be pressured into setting an early release date for their work.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
