Nobody thought Radiohead would follow a conventional release model for the followup to their brilliant In Rainbows, but…this was unexpected, to say the least. This morning the band announced that their eighth album, The King Of Limbs, will be available for download on their site Feb. 19. That’s this Saturday! Between then and March 28, when the record will be sold in CD and 12” vinyl form at regular outlets, fans can buy the album as is or a deluxe edition including two clear 10” vinyl records.
Limbs was produced by frequent collaborator Nigel Godrich. Are you as surprised as we are? Will you be downloading it this Saturday? Let us know.
