Radiohead’s new record, The King Of Limbs, is presented here with a choice of two digital formats:

  • MP3 version is a 320K constant bit rate file.
  • WAV version is a full CD quality uncompressed digital audio file.
  • One lucky owner of the digital version of The King Of Limbs, purchased from this website, will receive a signed 2 track 12? vinyl.

The King of Limbs can be pre-ordered now and downloaded on Saturday 19th February 2011.

Pre-order either format here. The Newspaper Album will cost you $48, while the digital album will cost you only $9. The ship date for The Newspaper Album is May 9th, 2011. Unlike their last record, In Rainbows, this won’t be a pay-what-you-want kind of affair. Still, it’s fairly amazing that Radiohead operates their album releases like Apple does their tech products. Make an announcement, watch people line up to buy them. Not much in the way of promotion, but now I know what I’ll be doing this Saturday — downloading and listening to the new Radiohead LP.  [via stereogum]
