New Radiohead art

After announcing several headlining performances at European music festivals this summer, Radiohead have announced a brief world tour. It kicks off in May in Amsterdam and will visit New York City and Los Angeles in late July and early August, respectively. They’ve also unveiled new art on their website and social media pages (above).

To recap

Radiohead have been working on a new album since the fall of 2014, but it wasn’t until 2015 that the band seemed to really make it a priority.

Around Christmas, the band shared their first piece of new music since the pair of singles that followed The King of Limbs in 2011—their rejected theme song to the latest James Bond movie, Spectre.

Back in January, Radiohead caused a stir among fans when they registered a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP, a move so similar to what they did just months leading up to the releases of The King of Limbs and In Rainbows. “Dawn Chorus” possibly refers to the Boards of Canada track, as well as a song that Radiohead have been playing with since 2009.
