On Sunday, a photograph of a white record appeared on Thom Yorke's Tumblr page, stoking rumors of new music from the Radiohead and Atoms of Peace frontman. The photo was also shared by frequent Radiohead producer and Atoms for Peace member, Niguel Godrich, Consequence of Sound reports.

Radiohead's last album, "The King of Limbs," was released in 2011. However, earlier this year Radiohead's lead guitarist and keyboarder, Jonny Greenwood told BBC Radio 6 that after their year hiatus, the band would be "playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding."

During Radiohead's break, Thom Yorke recorded the 2013 album "Amok" with Atoms for Peace.

It is unclear if this photographed record may allude to new Raidohead music, an album from Atoms for Peace, or solo work from Thom Yorke.

Earlier this month, Radiohead updated its PolyFauna with new visuals and music. Some of that music can be heard below:
