Radiohead has once again kept fans on their toes by releasing their new album a day early. This morning, the band made a surprise announcement to say their eighth release, The King of Limbs, previously due on Saturday Feb 19, has arrived a day early.
The statement on behalf of Radiohead said: "With everything ready on their website, the band decided to bring forward the release rather than wait until the previously announced date." The album features eight tracks with titles such as "Bloom," "Feral" and "Give Up The Ghost."

Radiohead have kept fans on their toes once again by releasing their new album a day early. Only days ago, the band made a surprise announcement to say their eighth studio release, The King Of Limbs, was due on Saturday. But they were unable to wait even that long and made the eight-track album available early to fans who had ordered it through their website.
The internet was soon abuzz with excitement from devotees, with the album title quickly becoming one of the most popular phrases on social networking site Twitter. The band's frontman, Thom Yorke, and new track Lotus Flower were also much-discussed. Radiohead have again bypassed major labels and released the album through their website.
They ended their long association with EMI's Parlophone label after six albums and opted to go it alone for 2007 release In Rainbows.
