The King of Limbs

Very big thanks to Nick for informing about this, cause I was just looking at Radiohead's website yesterday out of curiosity and saw nothing...

The King of Limbs - Pre-Order

Yeah, that's a new Radiohead album. And despite it only being announced today, get this, it will be released this Saturday, the 19th of February. Well, this Saturday to download in MP3 and WAV formats only, for $9 or $14 depending on your preferred format. The King of Limbs won't see a physical CD release until March 28th, and that's for the UK only as of now.

You can also pre-order a special "newspaper" edition, for release in May 2011; which includes two clear 10" vinyl records, a CD, and "Many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together." This also includes a digital download, again in MP3 or WAV, so that you won't have to wait to hear the new music.

So, for us cheapos, we can't name out own price like we could with In Rainbows, but hey.. NEW RADIOHEAD! I can't say I've listened to Radiohead too much since playing the hell out of the last album in 2007, and those couple of singles they gave out in 2009, but I'm pretty excited. As of now there's no mention of what the tracks on the album will be titled, or how many tracks there will even be. We'll find out on Saturday!
