Radiohead will start recording its next album this fall, according to bassist Colin Greenwood. In an interview with South Africa's Mail and Guardian earlier this month, Greenwood said that the band plans to regroup in September to begin work on the follow-up to 2011's The King of Limbs. He backed up the statements today in another interview with BBC-Radio 6, saying, "We’re taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer."

In the meantime, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is staying busy with Atoms for Peace – his side project with Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, and others – whose debut album, Amok, arrives on February 26th. Yorke and Godrich also recently soundtracked the Rag and Bone Fall 2013 menswear show.

This isn't the first we've heard of Radiohead's post-Limbs recording plans. Last summer, the band recorded at least one new track at Jack White's Nashville studio before playing Bonnaroo. "I love it," White recently told RS. "So I hope that's gonna come out soon. It's up to Radiohead. I don't know where they're at with it."

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
