Radiohead announces new album ‘The King of Limbs’
Sometimes staying up all night has its advantages.
The best part about this announcement is that the album will be available for digital download this Saturday, February 19, 2011. Yes, you read right: Fans all across the world only have to wait six days to hear the highly-anticipated new album.
There are two pre-order options in the United States. The first is something called a “newspaper album,” which will ship on May 9, 2011. In addition to copies of “The King of Limbs” on vinyl, CD and digital download, the $48 package comes complete with “many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together.” It sounds like this option will be similar to the limited edition box set that was released for “In Rainbows” in 2007.
The second pre-sale option is simply a digital copy of the album for just $9.
It should also be noted that both options offer the digital album in MP3 or WAV format, the latter of which costs an additional $5.
