Radiohead’s new record has been announced (on Valentine’s Day of all things). You can pre-order it at TheKingofLimbs.com. Pre-orders get to download it on Saturday.
Ever since Mario Rossetti introduced me to them, they’ve been an obsessive favorite of mine. I even went as far as to write a series of nonet charts for my Jazz group, Wicked Children. We haven’t played in a while, but with a new record to mine for content, it may be time for a reunion.
From the Order Site, Here’s What I Ordered:
Radiohead’s new record, The King Of Limbs, is presented here as the world’s first* Newspaper Album, comprising:
- 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 on Saturday 19th February 2011.
- 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.
So, pricey maybe…I got the big version at $53 with the high-quality downloads and all, but that’s a lot of nice pack-ins for the serious Radiohead geek.
