The King Of Limbs out this weekend

Add your comment »

Oxford quintet Radiohead have once again announced that they're to release a new album outside the usual channels, and have gone online to tell us all about it. The King Of Limbs will be released digitally on February 19th in both MP3 and Wav format, and can be "pre-ordered" now, which is an odd concept. This will be followed on March 11th by the world's first "newspaper album", whatever that means. This will feature the album on double vinyl, CD, and download (can be redeemed this weekend) "many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together", and a portion of chips to be wrapped in it. Possibly.

You can find out full details and purchase the record at the King Of Limbs website. Expect a deluge of barmy news reports and column inches about how Radiohead have once again shown the way it'll all be soon and save the industry blah hic over the next few weeks. Have a look at the tree called 'The King Of Limbs' here

That still is frighteningly reminiscent of a Backstreet Boys album cover.

Holy sh!t...the new PJ Harvey album AND Radiohead all in the same week. All I need now is a new Tom Waits album released on Wednesday perhaps.

Has anyone else noticed that the picture at the top of the page linked to here (in order to see the tree called 'King of Limbs') is almost exactly the same as the cover of the Virginia Astley album, 'From Gardens Where We Feel Secure'?
Or a sign that Radiohead are going ambient neo-classical new age ambient...?

I love how in that band photo it looks like they're all about to witness the Manhattan Project.

And, is it just me, or are Radiohead making a habit of ripping off Kristin Hersh's album release ideas? (She who released her latest album as a book, with downloadable MP3/FLAC files, that is?)

That is well known that cash can make us disembarrass. But how to act when someone doesn't have money? The one way is to get the home loans and commercial loan.

It never ceases to amaze me that they still put their music online first and then later in cd format for the stores. Atleast they decided to charge for their music. To many artist are not getting paid for their music but is still being copied all the time to be replayed. Radiohead is one of those bands where I know that no matter what I buy, it’s going to be really awesome. I have no worries.
