Sonic Youth could return to the studio next year.
Alternative rock band Sonic Youth have revealed they plan to record the 17th album in 2010.
In an interview with BBC 6 Music, guitarist and vocalist Lee Ranaldo said that the band will "most probably" return to the studio next year to start work on the follow-up to The Eternal.
He also revealed that before Sonic Youth start working on their new material, they have to contribute to the soundtrack of a French teen film.
"We met the director in Paris and we liked what we saw," the musician added.
Ranaldo also told the broadcaster that the group could release a DVD, which will include archive footage of performances in 1988, as well as scenes from recent Daydream Nations tour.
In addition, he told music fans that they are likely hear fresh material if they watch the band live soon, explaining: "We're still deeply ensconced in our new record, so we're gonna play a lot of The Eternal."
Last month, singer Florence Welch told BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat that she will start work on the second Florence And The Machine album in January.
