Radiohead has been recording the follow-up album to 2007′s In Rainbows since last winter and according to the band’s guitarist Ed O’Brien, it could be their best yet.
“We’re in the heart of the record,” O’Brien told BBC 6 Music’s Adam Buxton.”It’s genuinely exciting. It’s very different from what we did last time. It’s really nice to be doing this. It’s so good to be making music with the band that you feel is still as good as it’s ever been.”
O’Brien didn’t have an actual release date for Buxton, but hopes it’s out by year’s end.
“Ideally it would be great if it came out sometime this year,” he said. “It has got to. I hope so. We’re at the finishing line. When you’re making a record, a film, write a book for ages and ages you think the finishing line is miles away. Now it feels it’s in touching distance. But of course, it being a creative process, at the last bit also, you have bursts of energy, you achieve a lot of things in a small period of time and then you’re nearly there…it might slow down. But yeah, hopefully it will be a matter of weeks.”
