Finally - Radiohead Pops Saturday Date for New AlbumFinally - later than originally anticipated - Radiohead chose Valentine's Day to pop the date. In fact Radiohead announced more than one date, but it still remains to be seen whether these dates will yet prove the most important in the 2011 music calendar.

"Thank You For Waiting," the band's official website stated early this morning. Teasingly, fans were then presented with an "Alice in Wonderland" moment when they clicked on the link: "The new Radiohead record, The King Of Limbs, is through here," the next page announced.

Click on this link and the order page appears: "Newspaper Album - PRESALE," the page explains. "Radiohead's new record, The King Of Limbs, is presented here as [perhaps] the world's first Newspaper Album."

The Newspaper Album, consisting of two vinyl records, a compact disc, and "many large sheets of artwork," won't be ready for shipping until May 9th, but the album can be downloaded in digital format this Saturday, February 19th.

The name of the new album relates to an oak tree in Wiltshire's Savernake Forest.

The release breaks with the honesty-box tactic the band initially employed for In Rainbows in 2007, but emulates the current trend in marketing a collector's edition set. Radiohead has not yet released any information about The King of Limbs' contents, though it has confirmed that the band's longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich produced the record.

No previews, no leaks, but many fans from across the world have already pre-ordered one of the most eagerly anticipated albums of the year.

Excuse me for the double take, but no sooner have we read from Radiohead's bassist Colin Greenwood that they "have just finished another group of songs, and have begun to wonder about how to release them" and from guitarist Ed O'Brien, in June, that Radiohead is currently back in the studio putting the finishing touches on the "best album we've ever made" when drummer Phil Selway adds a cautious note that they "might just throw this all out."  Thom Yorke may well look puzzled.

Perhaps too much was read into Greenwood's comments in the article he wrote for Index on Censorship explaining why the band released their last album, In Rainbows, directly to the fans? In his essay, he wrote, "Three years later, we have just finished another group of songs, and have begun to wonder about how to release them in a digital landscape that has changed again." Later in the piece he added, "We have yet to decide how to release our next record, but I hope these partial impressions will help give some idea of the conversations we’ve been having." His article was never intended to announce the pending release of a new Radiohead album.
