Radiohead’s new album is out! The King of Limbs can be downloaded and purchased here.
The band’s eighth studio album was released online 24 hours earlier than planned on Friday. Radiohead also posted a video for a new song from their album called “Lotus Flower.”
Here are some reviews so far:
“With eight tracks spanning 37 minutes, King of Limbs is surprisingly short — but it’s also typically rich with electronic texture.”
Will Hermes, Rolling Stone
“The King of Limbs, the new Radiohead album, balances beautifully the band’s gift for melodic rock, energetic electronic rhythms and crafty musical experimentation . . . The King of Limbs leaves us yearning for more from these sessions. Rather than a condemnation of the album, that’s high praise. Moments of brilliance are apparent even at first exposure; several tunes take root in our imagination even after a single listening. For its confidence, sense of adventure and abundant musicality, The King of Limbs reinforces the idea that Radiohead is the band that makes the most interesting and satisfying rock recordings since the Beatles. Nearly two decades into its recording career, Radiohead is still the standard for the present and future of rock.”
