Radiohead fans may need to wait for a long while before the band gets together again for the next big project, because each member has been busy working on their own individual projects.

Drummer Philip Selway recently announced that the band will take a “year away” from the recording studio to indeed focus on solo projects.

“There are always conversations going on, but we’ve always got other projects going on. This is kind of the year away from Radiohead, but we will pick that up again,” he told NME, without revealing additional details about what fans can expect when they will return.

While Radiohead unveiled their latest and ninth studio album A Moon Shaped Pool in 2016, Thom Yorke and his bandmates have each been working on their solo endeavors.

The Radiohead frontman notably composed the soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 supernatural horror film, Suspiria.

Last June, he also released his third solo album, ANIMA, which arrived with a short film by Paul Thomas Anderson.

Meanwhile, guitarist Ed O’Brien has been teasing his debut solo project as EOB with Brasil, in which he enlisted Radiohead bandmate Colin Greenwood on bass.

Radiohead’s multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonny Greenwood launched his own classical music label, Octatonic, back in October.

In the meantime, drummer Philip Selway is gearing towards the release of his third studio album.

Details about the long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s Weatherhouse are still scarce to this date, although the English musician told NME that he will spend the coming months “writing and recording”.

“Watch this space. It always surprises me how things can develop. I never expected to be doing soundtrack work before. All of these things are to develop your musicality and bring their own raft of ideas with them,” he added.

In addition to working on their solo projects, the “Creep” rockers recently launched their own Radiohead Public Library, which warehouses their entire catalogue in chronological order.
