Radiohead has been slyly rolling out their long-awaited new album by erasing themselves online—their anti-announcement began with the reclusive quintet completely deleting their internet presence. This week they began refilling their social media platforms with teasers for a new video and new song, "Burn the Witch," which was released on Tuesday. And this morning they repopulated their website, Dead Air Space, with a Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for a pretty/dreary new song, "Daydreaming." (Download it here; watch the video below.)
This came along with the announcement fans have been obsessively daydreaming about: Radiohead's ninth studio album will be released digitally on Sunday, May 8th at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. A physical release is set for June 17th. The album's title is not yet known.
