Radiohead announced on this past Monday that they were releasing their new album, The King Of Limbs, on Saturday. No leaks. No months of endless hype and marketing and anticipation. Just a note, ‘Thank you for waiting’, order it here, and it will be here in 5 days.
Then they decided to release it today, Friday, a day earlier. And it’s here.
From my initial listen, it’s a bit more abstract and electronic than In Rainbows, a nod to Kid A and Amnesiac as well as Thom Yorke’s solo work.
Enjoy the first single/video, Lotus Flower.
