Band to work on new material next year.

Hurrah! Quietus favourites Sonic Youth have revealed that they are planning on working on a new album next year.

Following the release of the fantastic The Eternal earlier this year, the New York group will begin working on new material in 2010.

Guitarist Lee Ranaldo told BBC 6Music: "We’re most probably going back into the studio next year."

Ranaldo also spoke about the band's forthcoming UK tour dates, adding: "We’re still deeply ensconced in our new record, so we’re gonna play a lot of The Eternal.

"That’s what we’re having the most fun with. We usually try and pick a smattering of stuff from various old records. It could be way old or it could be from the last couple, you never know."
