Radiohead are talking about getting back together for new material in the “next couple of years”

The group's last album, 'A Moon Shaped Pool', was released in 2016, so new material is long overdue.

Radiohead fans, rejoice; the band is looking to reconvene to work on new material soon(ish).

Drummer Philip Selway – who recently released solo album ‘Strange Dance’ – has revealed that, while the group is taking some time to focus on their individual projects, they are ‘talking about’ getting together to work on something new in the “next couple of years”.

Speaking to Prog Magazine (via MusicNews), Selway said: “We’re always talking about stuff. But in terms of an actual kind of collective project, beyond the ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ stuff that we’ve been doing [2021’s ‘Kid AMnesia’ reissue project and interactive exhibition], it’s kind of further down the line for us when that will happen. We’re talking about that, but at the moment everybody’s doing their own thing.”

The group’s last album, ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, was released in 2016, so new material is long overdue. While we don’t know exactly when we can expect the band to release something, it’s reassuring to know that the Radiohead machine remains in motion.

“When the pandemic happened, we’d always planned to take a veer off from Radiohead around that, so we could get on with other stuff,” Selway explains. But that just meant that those other projects kind of grew, so we’re allowing time for all of those projects to go where they need to. But yeah, we’ll get together soon and in the next couple of years there will be something there, of some sort.”
