Radiohead Release “The Universal Sigh” Newspaper

In conjunction with the physical release of their The King of Limbs (Today in Europe, tomorrow in America), Radiohead have put together a newspaper: The Universal Sigh.  If you want to try and grab a physical copy, head on over to The Universal Sigh to find out where to get one.

Or, if you’d just like to read the thing, then some fine folks at Rip It Up in New Zealand have put together a .pdf for you.

Either way… Enjoy!

Radiohead Announce New “The King of Limbs” LP – Out Saturday!

Those scamps over in Radiohead pulled a fast one, this morning, and announced that their eighth record – The King of Limbs – is coming out this Saturday! Unlike last time, however, we have to pay for this one.  If you’re one of those people who loves digital music, then you’re in luck: Saturday (2/19) will see two formats released: MP3 (320kbps) versions of the album will run you $9, and WAV versions will run you $14.

The other format, which will be released on May 9th, is being dubbed “the world’s first Newspaper Album.”  With it, you’ll get two clear 10″ vinyl records, a CD, and “Many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together.”  Purchasers of this format will also have access to the download version on 2/19.  Prices are $48 for the Newspaper Album + MP3, and $53 for the Newspaper Album + WAV.

One lucky buyer of the Digital Download, as well as one buyer of the Newspaper Album, will have a chance to win “a signed 2 track 12″ vinyl.”
