Legendary rock band Radiohead aren’t calling it quits yet. The band has revealed they plan to start working on a new album this September.
The last album Radiohead released was King Of Limbs in 2011. That album, like almost every album in Radiohead’s catalogue, was met with critical and commercial acclaim.
