Good morning! Happy Monday! How are you? Oh, still sleeping? Well, rest assured, our wait is now officially over. Our friends overseas – you know, fucking Radiohead – have finally finished its eighth album. It’s called The King of Limbs and fans can… wait for it… get it as early as Saturday. This Saturday. As in, February 19th. Don’t believe us? Here are the details via Radiohead via TheKingofLimbs.com:

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.
  • *perhaps

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.

The King of Limbs can be pre-ordered now and downloaded on Saturday 19th February 2011.

Pre-order either format here. The Newspaper Album will cost you $48, while the digital album will cost you only $9. The ship date for The Newspaper Album is May 9th, 2011. No, it’s not like In Rainbows, where you can pay what you want, but you can’t say you weren’t just as surprised.

The album will also be released as a 12″/CD on March 28th via XL (Europe), TBD (North America), and Hostess (Japan/Asia).

For those wondering, the album’s title refers to a 1,000-year-old oak tree in Wiltshire’s Savernake Forest, which was three miles away from where Radiohead recorded In Rainbows.
