End is in "touching distance," says Ed O'Brien

Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien has confirmed that the band are within "touching distance" of finishing work on their new album, and that they hope to have completed it in "a matter of weeks".

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, the guitarist said: "For ages and ages it seems like the finishing line is miles away, and now it feels [like] it's in touching distance.

"But of course, it being the creative process, it's like anything, you have bursts of energy where you achieve a lot in small periods of time and then sometimes things slow down.

"But yeah, hopefully it's a matter of weeks," he added.

As of yet, there has been no release date or title given to the album, which will be Radiohead's first studio LP since 2007's In Rainbows.
