As of right now (10am UK Time) you can hear the first Radiohead single, Lotus Flower, from their new album The King Of Limbs.
The video for Lotus Flower is produced and directed by Garth Jennings, edited by Leila Sarraf, Choreographed by Wayne McGregor. The director of photography is Nick Wood. The video of the single is launched at Radiohead’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/radiohead.
Thom Yorke premiered the song Lotus Flower at a warm-up show with his other band Atoms For Peace on October 2nd 2009 at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. The first time it was played at a Radiohead show was at the Haiti fundraiser they did last year. The last time Thom Yorke performed the song was at a solo show Cambridge’s Corn Exchange, February 25, 2010 and announced it as ‘something newish’.
