Either I've been living under a rock lately or Radiohead really did just spring an entirely wholly new unexpected album on the world five days before they planned to release it.
Their eighth full length album will be titled King of Limbs, and will be available for digital download and physical pre-order from Radiohead.com starting on Saturday, just like they did with In Rainbows four years ago.
More from the press release:
For the next few weeks, the album will be exclusively available from the band's site in two versions - digital download (either MP3 or WAV) and a special, made to order deluxe edition featuring 2 clear 10" vinyl records, a CD, a digital download and exclusive artwork all in a special "newspaper" format.
Following this initial digital release on the band's own Ticker Tape imprint, the album will be on general release on CD & 12" vinyl in all music stores and major digital retailers from March 28th. As with In Rainbows, the band will partner with XL Recordings, TBD Records in the USA & Canada and Hostess Entertainment in Japan and Asia.
The King Of Limbs was produced by longtime collaborator, Nigel Godrich.
Exciting times for Radiohead fans, eh? First Johnny Greenwood's soundtrack for Norwegian Wood and now this. I hope no one has anything important like a fantasy draft this weekend, because I expect this will kill the internet as Girl Talk and newly minted Grammy Gods Arcade Fire did last year.
