At long last Thom Yorke and his four limey pals have popped their heads out of their holes much like that damn groundhog did just a week and a half ago. Much like Punxsutawney Phil, Radiohead had good news as well. Their 8th full-length LP entitled The King of Limbs is set to be released digitally on February 19th. That’s Saturday. Saturday! I’m all smiles tonight. I’m going to watch Machete when I am done posting here on the interweb. It will be that much more entertaining because of this news. I’m sure of it.
Anyhow, it is being billed as the world’s first “Newspaper Album”. It’s getting the deluxe treatment again, just like In Rainbows did. It’s coming with a slew of artwork, details about which, I am not privy to quite yet. Just that there’s a lot of it. The deluxe editions with be shipped in May with a pre-order but the album itself is also offered separately for a smaller price. You can get details at www.thekingoflimbs.com. It is going to be a loooong 5 days for yours truly, but a happy 5 days at that. Here’s the album artwork.
