Are you ready to see Thom Yorke dance again?

Well, we can’t promise any videos as wacky as “Lotus Flower” from 2011's King of Limbs, but Radiohead is indeed in the studio, working on its follow-up album. Guitarist/experimentalist Jonny Greenwood confirmed the news in a Nov. 19 radio interview on BBC’s David Prever at Drivetime.

"I’m late, they’ve all gone there now!" Greenwood joked, noting how his bandmates are in the early stages of working on a new album.

What's Up With Thom Yorke's Mysterious White Vinyl?

"I always feel as when we start up like we still don’t know really how to do it, and we don’t know quite what to do,” he continued. “‘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."

So far, the new Radiohead album has no confirmed release date or title.

Radiohead members have kept busy with various solo projects following the release of The King of Limbs. Yorke recorded music with his band Atoms For Peace and released the solo LP Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes via BitTorrent. Greenwood scored Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 film The Master and his upcoming movie Inherent Vice, while drummer Phil Selway dropped his second solo album, Weatherhouse, in October.
