Album Release: Fri 18 Feb 2011

8th studio album. First released as a download – one day ahead of schedule.

The band announced the record on Mon 14 Feb 2011 (Valentines Day), and according to the band's representative, they chose to push up the release because everything was ready on their website and so, hey, why not?

Radiohead continued to sell digital and deluxe packaging versions of 'The King of Limbs' exclusively from their official site through March.

The album was released as a standard CD on Tue 29 Mar 2011, as well as on 12-inch vinyl record, and to download from major digital retailers.
