"We're currently playing and recording, and it's fun to see everyone again. It's been a long time coming. We've been waiting, all of us, for a long time"

Radiohead fans, that new album edges ever closer.

Guitarist Jonny Greenwood revealed that the band is playing and recording new material, although they're still "fumbling" for the right approach, reported the NME, citing a BBC Radio Oxford interview. Greenwood said that the process will take time, as "working with Radiohead is all about repetition and working slowly."

"I'm late — they've all gone there now," said Greenwood on whether the band had already hit the studio. Greenwood has recently finished work on the soundtrack for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. Greenwood also composed the soundtracks for The Master and There Will Be Blood.

"We're currently playing and recording, and it's fun to see everyone again. It's been a long time coming. We've been waiting, all of us, for a long time," he said. 

The album is still in its early stages, said Greenwood, with the band still trying to figure out what path they will go down. "It always feels when we start up like we still don't know really how to do it, and we don't know quite what to do. 'Looking down avenues' is a very kind way of putting the kind of fumbling that we do, mainly because every time we try and do it like the last time — because that worked — it never seems to work. So we talk about different approaches, and we're currently trying a bunch out."
