Philip Selway Talks New Radiohead Album, Announces Solo Tour [FULL SCHEDULE]
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke made waves on Monday when he posted a picture of mysterious vinyl.
Could new Radiohead be upon us already? According to a new interview drummer Phil Selway did with Faster Louder, the band have not hit the studio yet.
"The first half hour will be cups of tea but we'll be very keen to get on with the music as well," Selway said. "That's what we're getting back together for, because we want to make music again together, that is what is going to drive it all along ... When we get back together then we'll discuss what we've got and where we want it to go. Even from there we never know where we'll end up with the record."
Members of the rock collective have been venturing into solo outlets for several years, and Selway released his debut, Familial, in 2010.
"We're all very supportive of what the others do outside of the band but we're recognise it has a real value to us as a five piece as well," Selway said. "Everybody is developing their musicality and it gives us a chance to try out things that maybe we can't do collectively in Radiohead. It frees up the way we do things in Radiohead. We all began in school together and for so long we worked exclusively with each other which was brilliant as we built up a strong musical identity together but then stepping out of that and getting experience from working with other musicians that then broadens what you do, you pick up lots of technique from other people and it does make you think about arranging or producing and that's a really healthy process."
Selway will be embarking on a short four-date tour in February 2015 in support of his second solo album, Weatherhouse (Oct. 6).
Here are the dates:
02/11: London, UK @ Queen Elizabeth Hall
02/12: Leeds, UK @ Brudenell Social Club
02/13: Glasgow, Scotland @ King Tuts
02/14: Manchester, UK @ Deaf Institute
