Radiohead spent the month of September in the studio working on their ninth studio album. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood recently told a Russian radio station that the band has finished the record.
“We have finished recording of the new album but we keep reevaluating the work we’ve done,” Greenwood told Russia’s Silver Radio (via Reddit). “We hope we’ll get it right soon, and after that we’ll start planning the next year’s tour.”
News of the album’s completion shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as drummer Phil Selway previously said the band hoped to finish in the fall. In early September, composer Robert Ziegler, who previously worked with the band on The King of Limbs, shared several photos from inside of the studio, including one in which Radiohead could be seen recording with an orchestra.
Even though there is very little known about the album it is sure to be another masterpiece as Radiohead is one of the few bands that can consistently produce music gold.
Update: Greenwood has clarified his comments on Twitter. He said lots of material has been recorded and “the band is about to go through it all to see if it’s any good.” Additionally, he said the band hopes to tour, but no plans have been confirmed.
