Radiohead are said to be in early stages of creating their ninth studio album later this year.
Bassist Colin Greenwood reportedly told BBC Radio 6 Music that the band, who are currently on a break, have agreed to begin new album sessions at the end of the summer.
"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," he said.
Radiohead's last studio album The King Of Limbs was released in 2011.
Frontman Thom Yorke is preparing to release Amok, the debut album from Atoms For Peace - the band he formed with Radiohead's long-term producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.
The five-piece band from Oxford, England won't actually hit the studio until late summer 2013, that means their next full-length probably won't likely be released this year.
