"Chaotic" sessions for eighth album

Radiohead are in the studio and banging around ideas for the follow-up to In Rainbows, bassist Colin Greenwood has revealed.

Speaking to the BBC, Greenwood said, "We just went in last week. It was really good. It was really noisy and chaotic and really fun."

However, he added that the band don't yet have any songs written. "We're at the stage where we've got the big Lego box out and we've tipped it out on the floor and we're looking at all the bits and thinking, what next?" he told Auntie at this weekend's Great Escape festival in Brighton.

"We've got lots of ideas but we don't decide what we're going to do until we've finished the thing. It's all up in the air, but it was up in the air last time."
