MusicNotes from the XPN Morning Show: Radiohead prepares new album, “Voodoo Festival” lineup includes Ozzie & Florence, and CeeLo’s new album is “Heart Blanche.”


Radiohead hasn’t made an album since 2011’s “King of Limbs,” but that’s about to change as they prepare their latest. Guitarist & keyboardist Jonny Greenwood talks about it.

Greenwood told a Dutch music site (3voor12)

“We didn’t do anything together for too long, so restarting took a lot of time & we’re working in periods now. We’re reshaping the song “Lift”(from 1996) similar to “Nude” from 2007’s In Rainbows. We never found the right arrangement for “Nude”, until we reworked it. “Lift’ is just like that. When the idea is right, it stays right. It doesn’t really matter in which form.”
