Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has revealed that he is “deep into” his next solo album. He also called for a ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas.

In an Instagram post, O’Brien thanked his “little community” of fans and explained that he had needed a break.

“I’m deep into my next record, and deep in the process,” he wrote. “I will share some more soon . from music to influences to gear .. all of it. it’s been and continues to be a journey..Sending love and warmth from me and Ziggy.”

O’Brien’s last solo album was 2020’s Earth, featuring Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood, Laura Marling, and Portishead‘s Adrian Utley.

Earlier in the message, O’Brien apologized for not commenting on the Gaza conflict earlier.

“Like so many of you I have found the events of October 7 and what has followed too awful for words .. anything that I have tried to write feels so utterly inadequate,” he said. “Ceasefire now. Return the hostages.”
