Radiohead‘s drummer Philip Selway recently stated that the band will release new material “of some sort” in the “next couple of years”.
Philip Selway talks about new material in a couple of years
In January, Selway said that he and his bandmates would be meeting up early this year to start putting things in motion.
“We’re going to get together at the start of , and I’m sure we’re going to start looking at other ideas for what comes next,” he said.
Now, the drummer has told Prog Magazine [via MusicNews]:
“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.
“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. 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.”
Speaking to NME earlier this year about the current status of Radiohead, Selway said:
“We have got together and we’re talking about future plans, but in the immediate future we’ve all got other projects which we’d all like to see through properly. There’s a collective desire to make music in some form or other amongst the five of us. We all really value that musical relationship, and that’s been there for 38 years. It remains really important to us.”
