Jonny Greenwood reveals more about their progress and his new Indian record
Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has revealed that the group has “changed [their] method again” during sessions for their new album.
The band have been recording the follow-up to 2011’s The King Of Limbs for a couple of months, with sessions reportedly “going well”.
“We’ve certainly changed our method again,” Greenwood told Indian newspaper The Sunday Guardian. “It’s too involved [to explain how]. We’re kind of limiting ourselves; working in limits. So we’ll see what happens. It’s like we’re trying to use very old and very new technology together to see what happens.
“We’ve done a couple of months of recording, and it has gone really well. We haven’t listened to anything back yet, so at the moment we’re all very happy. Now, I guess we’re going to go and listen to what we’ve done and see if we were right to be so happy. But we left it at a good place when we last stopped.”
Greenwood is currently recording an album at the Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur, India, with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and a set of Rajasthani folk musicians.
“We’ve been living here for nearly three weeks and recording an album here, in the fort. The Maharaja allowed us use of the fort, and we’ve basically been living here with 12 Indian musicians and we’ve made a record. It’s been great.”
