Album News: Radiohead – The King of Limbs

Selling music is not dead. Well at least if you’re Thom Yorke and co. Not content with bringing the “pay what you want” model to the mainstream, Radiohead have announced new album The King of Limbs as “the world’s first newspaper record.” So what exactly is a Newspaper Record? Here’s what the album’s official website has to say:
* 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.

This all costs £30 for mp3 or £33 for WAV, and the vinyls etc obviously. The digital only sister version costs 6 or 9 pounds depending on format.

  1. AWESOME! Hopefully it’ll be more like their earlier stuff. Not the biggest fan of the Eraser or In Rainbiows.
