Radiohead fans, we have some bad news. According to the band’s drummer Philip Selway, the group will take a break from music in 2020. This will allow the group members to focus more on side projects.

Selway revealed the news in a recent chat with NME. “There are always conversations going on, but we’ve always got other projects going on,” said Selway. “This is kind of the year away from Radiohead, but we will pick that up again.”

Selway, however, didn’t want to commit to saying that Radiohead will engage in new projects next year.

“We’ll see. We’re talking,” he added on the topic.

Radiohead’s last studio release came in 2016 when they released critically acclaimed A Moon Shaped Pool. Although the band hasn’t released any new music since then, they did treat their fans to some surprises.

Back in the summer of 2019, the group decided to unveil an 18 hours-long recording session for their seminal album OK Computer, while they also recently uploaded their entire discography to YouTube.

Last year also saw Radiohead’s frontman Thom Yorke releasing Anima, his third solo effort. Although the record wasn’t a commercial success, it did receive rave reviews from critics.
