Radiohead will head back into the studio to record the follow-up to In Rainbows in January.

Writing on a blog on the band's website, guitarist Ed O' Brien said the group were looking forward to being together again.

He said: "The vibe in the camp is fantastic at present, and we head off into the studio in January to continue on from the work we started last Summer.

"I am so genuinely excited about what we’re doing, but for obvious reasons I can’t divulge anything more. Anyway we all love surprises don’t we?"

'Hugely proud'

The guitarist said the good vibes during recording sessions now compared favourably to 10 years ago when Radiohead recorded fourth album, Kid A.

"Although hugely proud of that record, it wasn’t a fun place to be," he wrote. "What’s reassuring now, is that we are most definitely a different band, which should therefore mean that the music is different too and that is the aim of the game, keep it moving."

Radiohead last appeared live in the UK, headlining 2009's Reading and Leeds festivals.

Their last album, In Rainbows was released in 2007.

The band allowed fans to download the record via their website and pay whatever they wanted for it.
