radiohead announce new album


apparently the worlds first "newspaper album" won't really be released until may 9th, but you can get the tracks this weekend if you preorder the album from it's own website, www.thekingoflimbs.com. it seems that radiohead always comes up with some creative way to make money off of their new music in these trying times of digital downloads. the album will consist of the following, as quoted from the site:

"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.
  • One lucky owner of the digital version of The King of Limbs, purchased from this website, will receive a signed 2 track 12" vinyl."
