Radiohead believe their forthcoming album is their best yet.

The indie band - which consists of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Colin Greenwood and Phil Selway - have been busy working on the follow up album to 'In Rainbows' - their last LP released in 2007- and are pleased with the results so far.

Guitarist Ed O'Brien told BBC 6Music station: "We're in the heart of the record. It's genuinely exciting. It's very different from what we did last time. It's really nice to be doing this. It's so good to be making music with the band that you feel is still as good as it's ever been."

Ed also hinted that the album could be on sale by the end of the year but would not confirm a release date.

He added: "Ideally, it would be great if it came out sometime this year. It has got to. I hope so. We're at the finishing line. When you're making a record, a film, writing a book for ages and ages you think the finishing line is miles away. Now it feels it's in touching distance. But of course, it being a creative process, at the last bit also, you have bursts of energy, you achieve a lot of things in a small period of time and then you're nearly there. it might slow down. But yeah, hopefully it will be a matter of weeks."

Earlier this year Ed told fans: "We've got the potential to make a really different record which is always what we're trying to do, and that's the thing that excites us."
