Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien claims the band were misquoted when it was reported back in August that they had given up on making albums.
O’Brien, speaking to NME, said: “We were misquoted. We will be making an album!”
Thom Yorke had told Beliver magazine that “None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again.” However, the magazine elected to not print Yorke’s justification of that quote, adding “Not straight off.”
Yorke went on to say: “It worked with In Rainbows because we had a fixed idea about where we were going. But we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us.”
But O’Brien says Radiohead will be heading into the studio soon, with a release next year expected. He said: “We’re going into the studio in winter. It’s always miserable! Are we at the whim of the seasons? We are! When you’re in a studio in the countryside, the music you make is definitely affected by what season it is.”
