Following their stellar performance at the Grammys (and the sweet justice of an Album of the Year nod for In Rainbows), Radiohead has mostly been in the headlines because of alleged “beef” with Disney maven Miley Cyrus. (Which I still find hilarious, bt-dubs. Watch the video below if you somehow missed it.) But no longer! There’s real news to be shared: Bassist Colin Greenwood told British music mag NME that the band has begun recording their eighth studio album, another collaboration with producer Nigel Godrich.
“We’ve just started work [in the studio] last week,” he said.”It’s really cool and everything is sounding great. It’s early days andit is a bit like having a scrapbook at the moment because everything isup in the air, but it’s good to be back in the studio.” There’s no word as of yet as to when fans can expect the band’s “really cool” and “great” new album, but here’s hoping for the end of the year. OK, raise your hands, folks: Who’s excited?
