Extra! Extra! New Radiohead album available soon!

We suppose it shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the announcement of the immediate release of a brand new album by Radiohead is a cause for joy! This time, they must have figured they’d let Arcade Fire have the win for the Grammy’s and wait for the new year to release The King of Limbs, available for pre-order now and for download as soon as this Saturday!

Rather than offering it on the “pay what you will” model of the early release of 2007′s In Rainbows, the band is offering the new album as (potentially) the world’s first “Newspaper Album.” Those buying the full package will get a generous list of goodies:

  • 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.

    Thick As A Brick by Jethro Tull was the first “newspaper album”.
