They were going to call the album The King of Lies, but realized that referencing Boner so blatantly could cost them serious indie cred.

LOl so if you order the deluxe version you don't get it until 2 months after everyone else can get a physical copy?

That's poor planning.

Thom Yorke is a real-life James Bond.

I'm psyched. This will be amazing.

Good point, I find the new album to be drastically underrated at this point. I mean, mainstream radio is playing it AT ALL, and they weren't even nominated for a single Grammy last night.

You know who else had their thunder stolen by his album news? R.E.E.M.

The fact that they also have an album coming out soon is almost an afterthought as far as I'm concerned.

I'll get the new R.E.M. from iTunes. I haven't been terribly excited by what I've heard so far. Sounds just like the last two records to my ears.

Looks like R.E.M. announced their new album back on November 25! That's an eternity in internet time. I think Radiohead has it right: Announce on Monday and out on Saturday.

" The King of Limbs is a reference to an oak tree in Wiltshire, England's Savernake Forest. Thought to be more than 1,000 years old, the ancient tree and Savernake Forest are located close to Tottenham House, where Radiohead recorded part of In Rainbows "

It's their Joshua Tree

He's trying pretty hard to be the King of Beards.

The last two albums sound nothing alike. WTF are you talking about?

this happened to me, i'll try again. i don't know whether to get the whole "kit and caboodle" or just get the download and then buy the CD/vinyl later.

Yeah, maybe these threads should be merged.
