Radiohead new album details announced


radiohead album details the king of limbs Radiohead surprised everyone today by unexpectedly announcing the release details of their new album, The King Of Limbs.  Rumours have been circulating for a few months that the Oxford band had an albums worth of material ready – but the sudden announcement still took us by surprise.

In the announcement on their website, Radiohead revealed the album is available to preorder immediately at http://www.thekingoflimbs.com, with the mp3 version available for £6. The album will be released this Saturday (19 February).

This marks a bit of a shift for Radiohead, who famously released previous album In Rainbows on a ‘pay what you like’ basis – so either they didn’t make as much money from that as they hoped, or they are keen to avoid the furore it caused this time around!

As well as the £6 download out this Saturday, The King Of Limbs will also be released in a more physical form on 9 May. This “Newspaper Album” (whatever that means!) will cost £30 and consists of:

  • Two clear 10″ vinyl records in a purpose-built record sleeve.
  • A compact disc.
  • Many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together.
  • A digital download that is compatible with all good digital media players.

Also, one lucky Radiohead fan who buys the “Newspaper Album” will win a signed 2 track 12 inch vinyl.
