Yorke: I always think of quitting

Thom Yorke has been interviewed by Alec Baldwin in the US

Thom Yorke has revealed that he always thinks of leaving Radiohead.

The 44-year-old frontman admitted that he is constantly on the verge of quitting the band, and often wavers over their future, in a podcast interview with Alec Baldwin for US radio station WNYC.

Asked by the 30 Rock star if he ever thinks that they are "done", Thom said: "I do that frequently. Frequently. It's never really the music, it's always everything else. Just stresses of life, whatever."

But the married father-of-two admitted his bandmates - lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, bassist Colin Greenwood, backing vocalist Ed O'Brien and drummer Philip Selway - don't feel the same way.

"Not as much. They just wait for me to do it. But it changes," he said.

Thom, who is focusing on his new band Atoms For Peace, is set to return to the studio with Radiohead to work on their ninth album, the follow-up to 2011's The King Of Limbs.

Colin has said: "We're taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again (at the) end of the summer."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
