Radiohead are "a matter of weeks" away from completing their next studio release, according to the band's guitarist Ed O'Brien.

He told 6 Music's Adam Buxton that the Oxford five-piece changed their working methods on the new material, to avoid the lengthy recording process involved in recent albums such as In Rainbows.

"It was such a slog. We decided at the end of the record never to do it like this again. That was kind of the end of Radiohead mark two."

      I wish Radiohead and Nigel all the best with this new release. If it is 80% of what In Rainbows was they've got a winner. I say 80% because I'm incredulous they can match the brilliance of their last, which I still think this the best record of the last decade. Radiohead is in a fortunate position because I know people in their 20's thru 50's that have had the opportunity to hear a band that's been in their prime, then become dedicated fans, and new fans will emerge as they discover a band that has been blessed in so many ways. We in turn, as listeners, benefit.
