Three months after the end of The King Of Limbs Tour (with 58 concerts), a surprise waits the fans : Radiohead will be back in studio in September-October.
It's by an interview of Colin Greenwood (the bassist) on BBC 6 Music that he announced that :
« We’re taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again at the end of the summer. »
After The King Of Limbs (released in February 2011), the 9th studio album of Radiohead is planned for spring 2014, 3 years after their previous album, instead of 4 years between The King of Limbs and In Rainbows.
Meanwhile, Thom Yorke is currently working on the first album of his other band Atoms For Peace, composed of Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist), Nigel Godrich (Radiohead productor), Mauro Refosco and Joey Waronker. This album, called Amok, released on February 25th and 26th.
UPDATE : The album could be released in summer, unless Radiohead did like for The King of Limbs, that is to say announce their new album a few days before its release.
