    Anyone can play guitar. Radiohead makes albums.

    Today, Radiohead announced the release date of their eighth album, The King of Limbs. In the band’s typically disestablishment fashion, it is very, very soon: this Saturday.

    The sudden release date isn’t the only experiment for the band, however; The King of Limbs is being billed as the world’s first “newspaper album,” an high-end package laden with extras. They include:

        * Two clear 10" vinyl records in a purpose-built record sleeve.
        * A compact disc.
        * Many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together.
        * The Newspaper Album comes with a digital download that is compatible with all good digital media players.
        * One lucky owner of the digital version of The King of Limbs will receive a signed 2 track 12" vinyl.

    The King of Limbs will be shipped on May 9, but the digital download is available for on February 19 to everyone who pre-orders the record. Price in the States is $48-$53, with a digital-only presale available for $9-$14.
