Radiohead set for Limbs follow-up

Radiohead will begin work on their ninth album in September, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has revealed.

And they’ll allow the follow-up to 2010’s The King Of Limbs to take form organically.

The studio sessions will mark the first time they’ve worked together since ending a world tour three years ago. In the meantime Greenwood has been writing movie scores, frontman Thom Yorke toured his Atoms For Peace side-project with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, and drummer Philip Selway has completed his second solo album, set for launch in October.

Greenwood tells the BBC: “We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording, and see how it’s sounding.”

The guitarist will perform his score for the movie There Will Be Blood alongside his London Contemporary Orchestra at a pair of screenings in London’s Roundhouse on August 6 and 7.

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.
