The pioneering rock band Radiohead has released the new King of Limbs as a digital-first album. The physical album will be released on May 9th, complete with hundreds of special features.
Here’s more about the physical “Newspaper” version of the album, complete with two records and a CD: “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.”
Do you think this digital first, bundle later model could work for publishing? While you ponder that mystery, we’ve embedded a video of the band’s new single, “Lotus Flower” (complete with some trippy Thom Yorke dancing) for your listening pleasure. (Via Agency Spy)
