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."

An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
