The first single “Lotus flower” is already a hit! Radiohead’s new album, The King of Limbs digital release is pushed forward for one day. Radiohead has labeled it as the world’s first “newspaper album,” and costs $48 with an MP3 download but returns a lot of value for the price: two 10-inch vinyl records, a CD and a lot of artwork.

The King of Limbs is, in fact, quite a traditional release compared to Radiohead’s last album, In Rainbows, which was released as a digital download, letting customers order for whatever price they saw fit.

The reason for the early release is simple: everything was ready and in place, so Radiohead decided there’s no need to wait an extra day.

Those who pre-ordered the record should look for their download codes. New orders are, of course, still being taken as well. Radiohead is releasing the new album in the simplest possible manner: through its website, which is now open for pre-orders.
