Radiohead will perform their latest album, the King of Limbs in its entirety for a BBC Broadcast.

The Oxford band, fronted by Thom York, will record the performance, dubbed Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live From The Basement.

It will be aired on July 1 and is expected to be the first time that the whole album will be performed live.

The Radiohead gig is just one of a number of special band showcases planned, which will be screened as part of the From the Basement series.

Fans are expected to be very excited by the news. The King of Limbs was released to critical acclaim in February, with fans given very little notice that a new release was on its way.

With just eight tracks on the record, rumours quickly spread that the group had recorded many more songs that were waiting to be released.

However, in a recent interview with BBC 6 Music, guitarist Ed O’Brien said that any other tracks recorded in the sessions would be unlikely ever to see the light of day.

“There are [other] songs that we have started, that we never finished, but there’s not like seven or eight finished songs waiting in the wings to be released now, or in the autumn,” he explained.

“When we start a new record, we tend to start afresh.”
