Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has revealed that the band are set to head into the studio to record the follow up to ‘In Rainbows’ in January.

According to a blog on Radiohead‘s Dead Air Space site, O’Brien said the Oxford band are looking forward to reconvening, though he stopped short of going into too much detail about the new material.

“The vibe in the camp is fantastic at present, and we head off into the studio in January to continue on from the work we started last summer,” O’Brien wrote.


“I am so genuinely excited about what we’re doing, but for obvious reasons I can’t divulge anything more,” he went on. “Anyway we all love surprises don’t we? Ten years ago we were all collectively (that’s the band) in the land of ‘Kid A’ and although hugely proud of that record, it wasn’t a fun place to be. What’s reassuring now, is that we are most definitely a different band, which should therefore mean that the music is different too and that is the aim of the game. Keep it moving.”

O’Brien also gave his views on the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, which was attended by bandmate Thom Yorke.

“I haven’t spoken to Thom yet, but judging by his entries here and reading today’s papers the outcome of Copenhagen is a bloody disgrace,” he wrote.


Elsewhere, O’Brien also picked his top ten movies to watch at Christmas.

1. Harold And Maude

2. Sideways

3. 2001: A Space Odyssey

4. Where Eagles Dare

5. Son Of Rambow

6. This is England

7. Being There

8. The Year of Living Dangerously

9. Finding Nemo

10. Moonraker
