Although you should probably take any major music announcements on April Fools Day with a grain of salt, it looks like this one is the real deal. According to Johnny Greenwood, Radiohead may be getting to work on a followup to 2011’s King of Limbs as soon as this summer.
In a recent interview with Nashville Cream, the Radiohead guitarist/keyboardist/overall musical guru said, “Well we’re meeting up at the end of the summer, and we’ll make a plan. But, you know, we’re a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we’ll decide then what we do next.”
Radiohead are one of those rare bands that ages but never gets old. Over the years, they have shaped, re-shaped, and re-created their sound with each subsequent record, demonstrating an almost unparalleled ability to mature with time. It will be interesting to see where record number nine takes them.
To get into the Radiohead spirit, you can revisit Thom Yorke’s one-of-a-kind dance moves in the video for “Lotus Flower” below.
