The much anticipated new album by Radiohead, “The King of Limbs” is out: their first since 2007′s “In Rainbows.” In their own unique and surprising fashion, they released it on the internet a day early and without warning. Considering that the mass of Radiohead fans are probably online, the internet is awash with talk about the new album and its accompanying video. The clip, featuring Thom Yorke getting down to the song “Lotus Flower” has him spasmatically dancing, lip syncing and generally twitching in front of a warehouse wall. What could be more Radiohead?
Unlike their free release of “In Rainbows,” the new album (named after an ancient tree in a Wiltshire forest) is selling at $9 for mp3 files and $14 for CD quality Wav files.You can catch the video below, but for the full album head to thekingoflimbs.com.
Already, remixes are being popped out, poking fun at Yorke’s rather unique dancing style… two early examples are featured below. Who wants to recut this video and make it something all out spectacular?
