Last week Radiohead shared dates for its 2016 world tour, presumably to be accompanied by a new record. The band has been teasing information on its ninth studio album for some time now, and its longtime visual artist has added to the chorus.
Speaking to DIY, Stanley Donwood said he has indeed heard the new album and that it is “a work of art.” However, he clarified that the new LP is “not yet” entirely finished.
And he’s not done with his own contributions yet, either. Commenting on the artwork for the so-far-untitled LP, Donwood admitted, “"There’s quite a lot I still have to do.” DIY clarified that Donwood shared these statements via email on March 19, so it appears the band may still have a good bit of work ahead of it. The publication also said Donwood hinted that Radiohead "may have been working on the new record in France.”
