It’s real, and it’s happening. Radiohead have finally gotten around to releasing their latest full length LP, The King Of Limbs (Stanley Donwood artwork above) and it’s coming out Saturday, which also goes by the name of the 19th of February. If this sounds stifled and rushed it’s probably because while on the inside I’m about as excited as humanly possible, on the outside I’m trying deserpately not to start yelping in public and getting huge The King Of Limbs tattoos placed on my body. As for the album not much is known about it, other than that the stupidly awesome “Newspaper Album” version is both stupid and awesome, and has these things in it which you absolutely, 100% cannot live without.
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.
There’s also a download option, but naturally that’s lacking in everything good in the world and you should feel bad about yourself if you opt for it (not really, maybe I’m just trying to justify my purchase of 625 tiny pieces of art)
Pre-order that fucker here.
