The UK rock band Radiohead have announced that they will be releasing their 8th album, entitled The King of Limbs, this Saturday, February 19th, 2011. The digital download will be available this weekend in two options: $9.00 for the MP3 download, and $14.00 for the uncompressed, high-quality WAV version, a departure from their pay-as-you-see-fit model for their 2007 self-released album In Rainbows. Pre-orders for both the digital and physical versions are available via the album’s website www.thekingoflimbs.com. An elaborate packaging for the physical release comes with a price tag of $48.00, but additional material is included in the package:


  • -Two clear 10" vinyl records
  • Large sheets of artwork
  • 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-color piece of oxo--degradeable plastic to hold it all together
  • A digital download that is compatible with all good digital media players.


For an additional $5, you'll receive the WAV files as well as the MP3's. The physical package will be shipped on May 9th; you can, however, enjoy the download on Saturday with everyone else.
