Radiohead Releasing New Album, The King of Limbs, on Saturday

Happy Valentine’s Day, Radiohead fans! Earlier today, the band made the surprise announcement that they’ll be releasing their eighth studio album, The King of Limbs, and it will be available as a digital download on Saturday, Feb. 19. Yes, that’s in five days!

But unlike the band’s last album, 2007’s In Rainbows, the digital release of King of Limbs will have a set price. An MP3 version of the album will cost $9 and a CD-quality WAV version will go for $14.

Radiohead also plans to offer up this spring a so-called “newspaper album” edition of The Kings of Limbs, which will consist of two 10-inch vinyl LPs and a CD, along with “many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-color piece of oxo-degradable plastic to hold it all together”. This deluxe edition of the release will cost either $48 (which will also include the MP3 digital files) or $53 (for the WAV files), and will ship on May 9.

According to Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, “standard CD and vinyl versions of the album will be made available March 28 in retail outlets through a partnership with XL Recordings."

Head over to thekingoflimbs.com to preorder the album.
