Writing on Radiohead's Dead Air Space site, O'Brien said the group are looking forward to reconvening, saying, "The vibe in the camp is fantastic at present, and we head off into the studio in January to continue on from the work we started last summer.
"I am so genuinely excited about what we're doing, but for obvious reasons I can't divulge anything more," he went on. "Anyway we all love surprises don't we? Ten years ago we were all collectively (that's the band) in the land of 'Kid A' and although hugely proud of that record, it wasn't a fun place to be. What's reassuring now, is that we are most definitely a different band, which should therefore mean that the music is different too and that is the aim of the game. Keep it moving."
Meanwhile, frontman Thom Yorke is joining Phillip Glass and Damian Rice in composing new material for the soundtrack to a new documentary on Tibet by director Dirk Simon.
The film, 'When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun,' will feature three brand new compostions from Yorke, according to a Simon interview on Twentyfourbit.com.
The film, about the Free Tibet movement, will also feature a theme composed by Phillip Glass -- who has also written the 'grand finale' sequence.
Rice has also written one new song to accompany the film.
Björk, UNKLE and Eric Clapton have also contributed previously released tracks to the sountrack, which is likely to be released at the same time as the Simon documentary, sometime this year.
