Jonny Greenwood has given a progress report on the new Radiohead album.

During a recent interview with Dutch music website 3voor12, Greenwood confirmed that the band are working in the studio “in periods” and that restarting the process “took a lot of time.”

Consequence Of Sound report that the interview has since been translated by the Radiohead community on Reddit.


“We didn’t do anything together for too long, so restarting took a lot of time,” Greenwood said. “We’re working in periods now. This afternoon, Thom and I will work on a song we started yesterday, see what it will lead to.”

He went on to reveal that the band were re-visiting a 1996 track, “Lift“.

“What people don’t know is that there’s a very old song on each album, like ‘Nude’ on In Rainbows. We never found the right arrangement for that, until then. ‘Lift’ is just like that. When the idea is right, it stays right. It doesn’t really matter in which form.”


Watch Radiohead perform an early version of “Lift” live at Pinkpop Festival in 1996.
