New Radiohead Album Drops A Day Early, Video For 'Lotus Flower' Released

Radiohead's new album "The King Of Limbs" is out 24 hours early. The album is being sent to those who pre-ordered it earlier this week. (Note: It's 6:20 a.m., and I've just been authorized to download my purchased copy.) This is the statement on the XL Recordings website.

"With everything ready on their website, the band decided to bring forward the release by a day rather than wait until the planned date of Saturday, Feb 19 to deliver the music."


Here's the first video from the album.

Orders for the download or the special edition, which is packaged in Radiohead's version of what the band is calling a newspaper, can still be placed at radiohead.com. XL Recordings will release the album on CD and vinyl on March 28.
