Radiohead to release new music in the next couple of years


The band’s drummer said that fans can expect new material from the five-piece “further down the line”.

In a new interview with Prog Magazine, Philip Selway shared that a Radiohead reunion will hopefully happen within “the next couple of years”. This latest update from Selway follows on from an feature he did with Spin earlier in the year in which he said the five-piece were set “to get together at the start of [2023].”

“We’re always talking about stuff,” Selway told Prog, “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.”

Selway said that they are talking about what’s next for Radiohead but are all currently focused on their own different projects – which includes Selway’s recent solo release Strange Dance and Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood’s project The Smile. “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 said. “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.”

Radiohead’s last album was 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool and they last toured together in 2018. In 2021, to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Kid A and Amnesiac, they released a triple album and accompanying interactive game.

Earlier this year, Youtuber on4word shared a version of Radiohead’s In Rainbows composed entirely of Nintendo 64 sounds, in particular the sound effects from the game console’s 1996 Super Mario 64 video game.
