Phil Selway: "now feels right" time to start recording new Radiohead album

Radiohead drummer Phil Selway has said that now is the right time to start working on the band's new album, though he has "no idea" what it will sound like.

The band will regroup to start work on the follow-up to 2011's The King Of Limbs in September, as has been previously confirmed.

In an interview in this week's NME about his forthcoming new solo album Weatherhouse, which will be released on October 6, Selway is asked whether he can make any predictions as to what a new Radiohead album may end up sounding like. "I have absolutely no idea," he says. "And that's what keeps us all there until the end."

"We are starting again in about a month's time. We've decided that now feels right to start making music and we've got the first week booked in together so we'll see how it goes," he adds.

Earlier this week, Radiohead updated their PolyFauna app with new music and visuals.
