Speaking to BBC 6 Music, guitarist Lee Ranaldo said: "We're most probably going back into the studio next year."
But before any of that goes ahead, the veteran guitarist revealed a work schedule that would make most bands need a little lie down. The band are already down to be working in a soundtrack for a French teen movie.
"We met the director in Paris and we liked what we saw," explained Ranaldo.
Sonic Youth, who have been playing their own unique brand of rock music since 1981, are also planning a major DVD release in 2010 of their highly successful 'Daydream Nation' tour that the UK in 2008. In addition to footage of that tour, the release will also include little seen footage from the time of the seminal album's 1988 release.
Indeed, Sonic Youth's extensive archives - covering almost 30 years of music making - are currently being put in order with a view to a possible release.
"We're doing a big archival house clean right now. We've got a massive archive of audio and video that's sitting in our studio in Hoboken. We've got somebody in there who's noting every single thing down and making a massive database, and then we're going to start digitising it because some of the tapes are 30 years old now," Ranaldo said.
Proving themselves to be as vital as ever, Sonic Youth recently nabbed the Innovation in Sound gong at this year's Q Awards while also finding time to attack the British National Party by calling them "clowns" at a recent London gig.
