WELL HOLY SHIT: Radiohead Set To Record New Material In December & January

The TV appearances, the mindblowing (and hard to get into) NYC shows, the multiple radio appearances... this is likely the most we've seen of Radiohead in the public eye in any year of the band's history, and it's been completely great. And now I have to give Rolling Stone kudos for a second time in as many days, as their new interview with frontman Thom Yorke concluded with the following:

"Radiohead are returning to the studio as well. They will work on new material at their recording space in Oxford, England, in December and January. 'We can get things together quite rapidly at the moment,' Yorke says brightly. He mentions one song, 'Come to Your Senses.' 'We have this version of it. It's a five-minute rehearsal, but it has the essence of what we need...' 'There are a few of those,' he adds. 'It would be fun to have them ready when we go to play next year. I don't know how we would release them.' Yorke smiles hopefully. 'It would be nice to make it all part of the flow and just enjoy it – not think about it too much.'"

That's right, kids. NEW RADIOHEAD MATERIAL, which we'll hopefully get a taste of early next year. Thom also mentions Atoms For Peace and the follow-up to his solo album The Eraser, which is "in flux" and apparently waiting for a bolt of genius to strike it. Betting that won't take long at all either.

Pardon me while I do a little happy dance.
