Radiohead's plans for a new album are ''up in the air''.

The 'Karma Police' hitmakers have put making their next record on hold to focus on their individual side projects and enjoy some much-needed time off.

In an interview with music website Drowned in Sound, bassist Colin Greenwood, said: ''It's all up in the air at the minute. Thom's just come back from touring Atoms For Peace and he's having some quiet time. I'm sorry to be vague but we're all just taking it easy at the moment.

''Just enjoying being at home and hanging out really. But at the same time, the vibe is very much Oxford and all good! It's like that.''

The band - also formed of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien and Philip Selway - intend to embark on a tour as soon as their new material is ready, but say a follow-up to their 2011 record 'The King Of Limbs' is a long way off.

Colin added: ''I wish I could say we were going to start work and put something out then spend 12 months on the road touring but we're just enjoying being at home right now. We had the best time when spent the last two years touring 'The King Of Limbs'.

''We all really enjoyed that. It was a really positive time. We definitely want to do it all again but we've just got to give it some time for the dust to settle. What I'm trying to say is everyone's very happy and positive and looking forward to the next adventure.''
