In Radiohead’s 20+ year career, the band has inspired, shocked, and sometimes confused critics and fans alike, and outright reshaped the format for distributing and purchasing music. Believe the hype, people. There’s a reason they’re considered the best.
So it should have come as no surprise when, with no warning, the band released their new album, The King of Limbs, and first single, “Lotus Flower,” online today—a day earlier than officially announced. Take that music industry insiders! Thom Yorke abides by no rules … except maybe the rule that animals are not ours to eat. As a long time vegan, it must be all the veggies and tofu that’s provided Yorke with such exceptional dance moves. What do you think?
