After battling numerous album leaks in the past, Radiohead has gotten good at dropping the “surprise, we finished a new record” bomb.
In 2007, Radiohead revealed days before its official release that a new record In Rainbows would be available as a pay-what-you-will digital download.
And early this morning, Radiohead announced that their eighth full-length, The King of Limbs, will be available for digital download on Saturday, Feb. 19, and will be shipped in "Newspaper Album" form on Monday, May 9.
Both the digital album and the Newspaper Album—which contains two clear vinyl records, a CD, a digital download, many large sheets of artwork and 625 tiny pieces of artwork—are currently available for pre-order at thekingoflimbs.com.
