On Monday morning, Radiohead announced the arrival of their new album, The King of Limbs. Although the album is not officially available in stores until May 9th, they will be releasing TKOL as a digital download on February 19, 2011. Yup, that’s this Saturday.
According to their website, TKOL is available in the physical “Newspaper Album,” (a metaphor for the disappearing technology of the compact disc) which includes ephemera and artwork to be shipped in May, or the digital version, available almost immediately. You decide.
