It wouldn't be a new Radiohead album cycle without a lot of mystery, intrigue, and strange behavior by the band.
Radiohead has performed stunts like this ahead of big album releases before, so chances are the band will be back online in no time. Last we heard, its follow-up to 2011's King of Limbs was going to be released in June, but with the band going dark, perhaps we'll see it hit sooner.
The English alternative rock band Radiohead have released nine studio albums, one live album, two compilation albums, one remix album, nine video albums, six EPs, 31 singles and 39 music videos. Radiohead released their debut studio album Pablo Honey in February 1993. It peaked at number 22 in the United Kingdom, receiving platinum certifications from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
If the recording process for Radiohead’s second album, The Bends, sounds torturous, it also sounds like how they recorded most of their other albums. Kid A spanned 18 months and half a dozen different studios. Hail to the Thief was legally Radiohead’s final album with Parlophone. With the contract wrapped up, they were free to go their own way shortly after. Siren singing you to shipwreck : Leave it to Radiohead to double Hail to the Thief’s most frightening track as its most pop-like, too.
Radiohead has done the impossible and once again disrupted our attention economies with the radical move of erasing its entire web and social media presence in advance of the release of its new album (scheduled for May 8, 2016, 7 pm BST). It’s an act of quite aggression, insisting on the artist’s right to be a digital hermit. No one can say they haven’t been warned: I am not here. This is not happening, Thom Yorke sang in the track How to Disappear Completely back on Radiohead’s 2000 album, Kid A. Of course, if you’re not here, you must be somewhere else.
By Al Horner, May 1 2016. UPDATE: Nigel Godrich takes the first action since the band’s social blackout. Radiohead have deleted their entire web presence, sparking speculation their new album will arrive tonight (May 1). Fans have been on the lookout for some kind of development this weekend after mysterious leaflets were sent to fans in the UK featuring the phrase ‘Burn The Witch’.
