Just a bit of quick news: Radiohead announced just a half-hour ago that their new album, The King of Limbs, will be available for download this Saturday, February 19th. Just like 2007′s In Rainbows, this announcement comes as a nice surprise. Anticipation will surely be mounting for the elusive LP8, which can be purchased for $9 on Saturday here. That’s just the basic MP3 version. The band is also offering a $48 package that they call a “newspaper album”. Here are the details:
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.
