Radiohead will be back in the studio rehearsing and recording, guitarist Jonny Greenwood told BBC 6Music Saturday, confirming speculation that the band may be coming out with its first new album in three years.
"We're going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding," Greenwood said, according to NME

Band members have been working on their own since the tour ended for Radiohead’s last album, "The King of Limbs."
Greenwood’s words confirmed what he told Nashville Scene in April.
“Well, we’re meeting up at the end of the summer, and we'll make a plan. But, you know, we’re a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we’ll decide then what we do next,” Greenwood said.
Greenwood has been working on film scores, including one for “Inherent Vice” that will be out in January 2015. The band’s frontman, Thom Yorke, stayed on the road with Atoms for Peace, and drummer Philip Selway worked on a solo album.
Greenwood told Rolling Stone, which named him to its list of Top 100 guitarists,
that he enjoyed the time off to focus on writing live music.
“I love the impermanence of the music live: It’s played in the room — which is itself infinitely variable from one concert to another — and then it’s gone, soaked into the walls,” he said. “Unlike recordings, it isn’t identical to the previous performance or the next one. It can go slightly (or badly) wrong at any time. And all that is shared equally by everyone in the room.”
Rolling Stone said Greenwood will perform the score he wrote for “There Will Be Blood” in London in August, the first time he’s performing it, and will follow with two New York City performances.
