Did you panic earlier this month when Radiohead's presence on the internet seemed to have completely disappeared?
Trust the English rock band to gain attention in their own unique way. Earlier this month, Radiohead caused a slight commotion online when their internet presence gradually disappeared; their Twitter and Facebook posts were erased, and their website slowly decreased in opacity until it went blank—even Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood's personal Twitter accounts seemed to follow suit. This happened one day after the band sent vague and mysterious flyers to loyal fans with the words: "Sing a song of sixpence that goes/Burn the Witch/We know where you live."
Then came the light two days later, when they posted animated clips on their social media accounts, hinting that a new album is on the way.
This was promptly followed by the unveiling of the music video for the single 'Burn the Witch', and 'Daydreaming' a few days later. Radiohead eventually announced that their new album A Moon Shaped Pool (their first since 2011's The King of Limbs) will be released on May 8, solving the mystery once and for all.
Finally, the wait is over. Fans can now get their hands on A Moon Shaped Pool—available in digital, vinyl, CD and special edition forms—on the website. The new album will be physically released on June 17.
