It would seem that the Oxford 5 piece have once again tired of life out of the studio, heading in once again with long time producer Nigel Godrich to work on their follow up to In Rainbows.
“It was very noisy and chaotic and really fun,” bassist Colin Greenwood told the English media. “And I’m very impressed and grateful for Nigel our producer and his ability to make it all sound vaguely plausible,” he added.
“It’s at the stage where we’ve got the big Lego box out and we’ve tipped it out on the floor and we’re just looking at all the bits and thinking what’s next?”
With In Rainbows’ now famous ‘pay what you think’ release, expectations are high as to what Radiohead will do with the next album.
“We were just saying to people how much do you think we’re worth?” Colin said. “It’s like a long term relationship and it was great because it kicked off lots of debate about it.”
The greater question to me though is what musical direction the band will take. With much of In Rainbows having been unreleased b-sides and singles that didn’t make it on previous album, the new album will the see the band once again starting from scratch.
With no label to speak of the band will have the most creative freedom of their career so far in making this album so let’s hope they deliver.
Also please don’t forget to contact the band and badger them about an Australian tour this time.
