Less than a week ago, the only thing anyone knew about a new Radiohead album were faint internet rumors. It was coming!…was about the detailed extent of it. We could hope it was sooner than later, but with Radiohead, it could be any day…or a year away. Today, as I write this, the new Radiohead album is booming from my computer speakers. The band announced a new album on Monday, and a mere five days later, it was available for all the world to buy. With the all the big music news this week…including Arcade Fire’s miracle win, new music by Green Day and Foo Fighters, and Justin Bieber’s pregnancy plans for Selena Gomez, all anyone talked about was that a new Radiohead album was coming…because honestly…that’s all that mattered.
The best thing about a new Radiohead album (if In Rainbows was any indication) was that the album was only the beginning of the digital musical floodgates. Last time, we were treated to multiple live shows, a BBC show, a B-side album, a Remix album, and much more. Let’s hope they have similar plans this time around.
