You may have heard murmours of a ninth Radiohead album, but in a recent interview with Dutch magazine 3voor12, Radiohead guitarist and sound-scaper Johnny Greenwood potentially reveals ‘Lift’, confirming they are working on a track they first started almost twenty years ago, akin to ‘Nude’ on In Rainbows, which was drafted ten years prior.
