Guitarist Jonny Greenwood says Radiohead plan to start working on their ninth album this September.

Speaking to Mary Ann Hobbs on BBC 6 Music, Greenwood said: "We're going to start up in September: playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding."

Jonny's brother and bandmate Colin has also hinted that the band will be back together in studio at the end of summer. He told music website Nashville Cream earlier this year that the band were aiming to get back together to "make a plan".

Radiohead's last studio album, The King of Limbs, was released in 2011, with several of the band members taking time to focus on solo projects since then.

Thom Yorke toured with Atoms for Peace, his band featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, and dtummer Joey Waronker.

Jonny is scoring the new Paul Thomas Anderson film, Inherent Vice, and more recently drummer Radiohead Phil Selway announced that he was working on a solo album.
