If you’ve previously ordered the Newspaper Album/Digital Album you should head on over to your Order Tracking page at the official King Of Limbs store for a little bonus from Radiohead. There on your order page you’ll find a link to download the two tracks from Radiohead’s Record Store Day 12″ Supercollider/The Butcher that was released over the weekend. No more having to put up with crappy iPhone YouTube clips or less than perfect vinyl rips (which were much appreciated over the weekend, don’t get me wrong).
The two tracks are only available for those who ordered the The King Of Limbs digitally or the Newspaper edition. Oddly enough, if you ordered the Newspaper Album with mp3 you’re stuck with 128kbps mp3s (now upgraded to 320 kbps), while those who ordered the WAV download get the songs in WAV form.
As previously reported, the Supercollider/The Butcher 12″ will be available in the US and Canada on June 14. So if you’re keen to pick up a copy but missed out over the weekend, maybe wait it out a couple months and try your luck tracking one down then rather than paying a silly amount of money on Ebay.
As the band posted in an email message:
Thank you – Merci – Gracias – Grazie – Dankeschön – Obrigado – Gui lah hui te ha – Ashoge – Shukran – Tsikomo – M goi – Tak – Dank u – Vinaka – Aabhar – Köszönöm – Go raibh maith agaibh – Arigato – Tashakkur – Dziekuje – Gestena – Hvala – Tack – Tesekkür ederim – Spasibo – Dêkuji – Sas efharisto ……
Right, that’s most of you covered, apologies to those we’ve missed out … ok, so here are two tracks for your listening pleasure:
Supercollider and The Butcher. We released these as a limited edition 2 track 12inch vinyl to mark Independent Record Store Day last Saturday, April 16 … so in case you missed out and didn’t get a copy here they are.
It’s a thank you for being SO supportive of what we do …
p.s. This is not part of a new loyalty points scheme, a Radiohead clubcard or even an air miles redeemable reward type thing…
It is just a big old-fashioned thank you!
Hope your Spring/Autumn is good.
Ed, Colin, Jonny, Philip & Thom
FYI… ‘The Butcher’ was recorded and mixed during ‘The King of Limbs’ sessions, but we couldn’t make it work on the album; ‘Supercollider’ was started during those sessions and finished off in March of this year.
