After a rather mysterious weekend which saw the majority of Radiohead's official pages go offline, the band have uploaded this Trumpton style video for what is thought to be their new single Burn The Witch. This is the first material that the band have released since their 2011 album King Of The Limbs.
Burn the Witch is surprisingly uplifting in melody for a Radiohead track as Thom Yorke's vocals soar over with typically anxious notions of doom and scaremongering such as 'This is a round-up' and 'Loose tongues around tables' and a soaring chorus of 'Sing a song of six-pence/Burn the witch/We know where you live'. It's classical influence is no doubt inspired by the work Jonny Greenwood has done with the London Symphony Orchestra in between albums.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
