The members of Radiohead say they'll make their eighth full-length album, The King of Limbs, available for purchase and download this coming Saturday on the band's website. According to the site, they're calling it "the world's first newspaper album." It includes two 10-inch vinyl records, a CD, more than 600 pieces of artwork and a digital download. The physical album will ship on May 9, while the downloadable version will be available Saturday.

When Radiohead released its previous album, In Rainbows, the band allowed fans to download the record for whatever price fans felt like paying. This time, the band is again self-releasing the album, but is charging a fixed price.
