Radiohead’s new album – King of Limbs

A CD and vinyl version of the new album will be available in a few weeks through independent label XL, with a luxury box set to follow in May.

Meanwhile, Radiohead were apparently set to announce King Of Limbs’ release with a broadcast on Hachiko Square in Tokyo at 6:59pm (JST), which would be 9:59am UK time.

However, due to security concerns the broadcast was cancelled.  Hundreds of Radiohead fans turned up to the location expecting some kind of appearance.

King Of Limbs will also be released on May 9 in what the band are billing as “the world’s first newspaper album”.
