New Radiohead album "up in the air" says Colin Greenwood
Colin Greenwood has said that Radiohead's plans for a new album are "up in the air" as members of the band focus on side projects.
Greenwood, who was recently named the the Official Ambassador for Independent Venue Week, spoke to Drowned In Sound and revealed that he and his fellow Radiohead members are looking forward to making new music together but admitted that they are enjoying some time at home as the dust settles from touring their last album, The King Of Limbs.
Quizzed on current activity in the Radiohead camp, Greenwood says: "It's all up in the air at the minute. Thom's just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he's having some quiet time. I'm sorry to be vague but we're all just taking it easy at the moment. Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It's like that."
Maintaining that live shows remain a long way off, Greenwood continues, "I wish I could say we were going to start work and put something out then spend twelve months on the road touring but we're just enjoying being at home right now. We had the best time when spent the last two years touring The King Of Limbs. We all really enjoyed that. It was a really positive time. We definitely want to do it all again but we've just got to give it some time for the dust to settle. What I'm trying to say is everyone's very happy and positive and looking forward to the next adventure."
Running from January 28 - February 2, the inaugural Independent Venue Week will celebrate the UK's smaller venues, with 18 sites hosting a six-day long series of shows. Artists, promoters, labels and blogs will work with the venues to curate and promote new talent across the country.
