New album news

From www.worldpop.com:

Radiohead plan to go back into the studio in May to record a new album according to Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien. The guitarist told worldpop: ‘The band are planning a get-together in May in the studio. We’re putting all gigs on hold at the moment to concentrate on writing new material.’
Speaking at yesterday’s NME/Carling Awards where the band won the award for Best Video for Pyramid Song, O’Brien said the new album may be a return to a guitar based format, ditching the electronica the band experimented with on Kid A and Amnesiac. ‘We’re listening to a lot of guitar music at the moment,’ said O’Brien. ‘I like a lot of the new bands like Electric Soft Parade.’

‘It’s a bit embarrassing to pick up an award for Best Video,’ continued the guitarist, ‘because it wasn’t made by us.’

O’Brien also refuted the band’s critics who claim they make depressing records. ‘We don’t make unhappy records. We make uplifting ones,’ he said.

Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood has also contributed to a new Bryan Ferry solo album entitled Frantic. The album is released on 15 April and Greenwood played on the track, Hiroshima.
