It's in the beginning stages...
In an interview with Nashville Scene, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood said the band would be meeting up soon to begin planning a new album. Here are highlights:
On the status of Radiohead's next album: "Well we're meeting up at the end of the summer, and we'll make a plan. But, you know, we're a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we'll decide then what we do next."
On writing a film score: "I usually just write lots of music for the film without a definite idea of where much of it is going to go. So there's usually lots and lots of music, more than is needed, and things are just chosen for certain scenes. Or at least, that's how I did There Will Be Blood. Recently I've been trying to write music for an actual picture, which is an interesting discipline. I'm still learning really. I haven't done a car chase or anything exciting yet. No gun play. So there's a few things I've yet to get into."
On the difference between Radiohead and solo work: "I don't think of it as doing my own work or music, I'm just part of the orchestra I'm playing with, or I'm in the band or I'm in partnership with a filmmaker, making music for his film. It's not really much to do with me. It's like writing a script for a film. Until you have good actors and a cameraman, it's just a piece of paper with half an idea. It's 50-50, at least."
