Some good and bad news coming at us from Radiohead drummer Philip Selway – progress has been announced on the band’s forthcoming LP to 2011’s King of Limbs, but the record might not be released this year like previously thought. Selway confirmed to Drowned in Sound that the album is “coming along nicely” and that the group will “get back to it in March and we’ll make an assessment of where we are then, but we’ve been excited about what we’ve been doing so far. It’s by no means finished yet, so we’ve got a way to go. It’s been a productive time though“.
When asked about a release date, which was projected for 2015 when band member Jonny Greenwood first announced the band was recording a new album back in November 2014, Selway stated: “I wouldn’t want to start to predict that kind of thing in a Radiohead schedule because you can find yourself six months down the line saying ‘I wish I hadn’t have said that actually’“. Selway also said that the group worked throughout the autumn on the album but now are “just taking some time away for other projects“. Which begs the question: what other projects are they talking about? I’d be interested in a new Atoms for Peace project, personally.
