Okay, last time I posted about Radiohead, it turned out to be a rumour. This is the real thing, with an interpretive dance by Thom Yorke for the first video, including a touch of Axl Rose-type serpentine swagger. The band has released the digital version of their album King of Limbs one day early, so you can buy it now instead of tomorrow. My fave so far is Morning Mr. Magpie. The band's website offers this info about the digital version:
Radiohead's new record, The King Of Limbs, is presented here with a choice of two digital formats:
•MP3 version is a 320K constant bit rate file. •WAV version is a full CD quality uncompressed digital audio file. •One lucky owner of the digital version of The King Of Limbs, purchased from this website, will receive a signed 2 track 12" vinyl.
Of course, there's also a special version available:

•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 now. •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.
