Radiohead - The King Of Limbs album artworkRadiohead have announced this morning (14 February) that their new album The King Of Limbs will be released digitally this coming Saturday, 19th February.

The King Of Limbs
will also be available in physical format as the “world’s first Newspaper Album”, in a package to be shipped on Monday 9 May. The Newspaper Album will include a CD, two 10″ vinyl records, “many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together” and a digital download of the album.

The pre-sale for The King Of Limbs is available now via TheKingOfLimbs.com, where you can find all the available details for The King Of Limbs.

Unlike their last release In Rainbows, this one is not a pay-what-you-can deal. The MP3 digital download copy of TKOL sells for £6.00 to UK residents and $9.00 for Canada and US.

The album share’s it’s name with a tree in Wiltshire’s Savernake Forest, thought to be around 1,000 years old.

So, on the morning-after when “everyone” was talking about the Grammy’s (well done Arcade Fire), leave it to Radiohead to steal the headlines…
