Hat tip to reader Jameson for passing along this tip: Those cagey Radiohead fellows are releasing a new album, The King of Limbs, on February 19. Now, the album isn't free like In Rainbows was, but the digital download is only $9 for MP3, $14 for WAV. There's also a reasonably priced deluxe vinyl version the band is calling a "newspaper album" that will be shipping in early May. Say what?
Radiohead's new record, The King Of Limbs, is presented here as the world's first* Newspaper Album, comprising:
-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.
-The Newspaper Album comes with a digital download that is compatible with all good digital media players.
-The Newspaper Album will be shipped on Monday 9th May 2011 you can, however, enjoy the download on Saturday 19th February 2011.
-Shipping is included in the prices shown.
-One lucky owner of the digital version of The King Of Limbs, purchased from this website, will receive a signed 2 track 12" vinyl.
Get cracking and order here! No word yet on a CD version of the album; I imagine, like all Radiohead releases, that we'll know more all in good time.
