Radiohead's "Supercollider"

If you ordered Radiohead’s The King of Limbs (the digital or the Newspaper album), go to the official King of Limbs page and download for free two bonus tracks from Radiohead.

‘Supercollider’ and ‘The Butcher’, which are in fact the two tracks from the 12” that was released for Record Store Day, are now available as a thank you note for the fans as the band explained it in an email:

‘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.’

Say what you want about Radiohead, you cannot deny it is a nice gesture.

Supercollider, which lasts 7 minutes, builds up very slowly around pulsating electronics, expanding synth and Thom Yorke’s voice, without going too far however, the furthest it goes being when his falsetto vocals are pushed at their highest, several times during the song, making the lamenting become more soothing.

The Butcher has an even more sinister tone with that menacing fat beat and a tenebrous bass line, whereas more instruments slowly emerge from the gloom, expanding the song with some haunting vocals,… is he really saying ‘He's a warrior/Warrior/Here's a little bitch coming at him’?

Again, the two tracks are free if you ordered the album, so go there to download them:
