Radiohead are already working on their next album.

The ‘Lotus Flower’ band only released their eighth album ‘The King of Limbs’ in February, but frontman Thom Yorke said they already have ideas for a follow up.

Talking about a new song, ‘Come to Your Senses’, he said: “We can get things together quite rapidly at the moment.

“We have this version of it. It’s a five-minute rehearsal, but it has the essence of what we need. There are a few of those. It would be fun to have them ready when we go to play next year.”

The band have previously talked about plans to tour next year, and already debuted two songs which were not on ‘The King of Limbs’ at recent shows in New York, ‘The Daily Mail’ and ‘Staircase’.

Thom added that the live environment is where their new material really comes “to life”.

Referring to their 2000 album, he added: “It was the same thing with ‘Kid A’ – the studio was this process, then you bring it to life.

“In ‘Bloom’, when Clive [Deamer, second drummer] goes from the electro pads to the live kit, and my guitar shoots up an octave, I’m like, ‘Wow!’ When we came up with that, it was like, ‘OK, we got it.’”

When the band will release new material is unknown, with Radiohead notorious for shunning publicity and releasing music suddenly.

‘The King of Limbs’ was released in February with little hype or publicity and the band have only played three live shows this year.
