At one point, people will become saturated with Radiohead news, but there is something new every day with the UK band. This week, not satisfied enough to release an album and give away this eccentric free newspaper in 63 locations worldwide, they are now announcing the future release of a 12”single on Record Store Day, April 16th. The single will feature two brand new tracks ‘Supercollider’ and ‘The Butcher’ and may be limited to 2000 copies and probably also limited to the UK? Sorry US fans.
‘Supercollider’ has already been played numerous times live, but the other song seems unknown. Some fans are suggesting this release is the first of the multiple limbs of ‘The King of the Limbs, and so more will follow…some are even suggesting the mp3 of the songs will be offered for free a little bit later on. Who knows?
But Radiohead are far from being the only ones releasing something new on that special day. On April 16th, hundreds of artists will be releasing exclusive records, and collector’s items, the large majority of them being limited-edition. You can go to the Record Store Day website to download the pdf of the complete list, but here are a few interesting ones:
The Beastie Boys will release a limited-edition 7” of ‘Make Some Noise’, a single limited to just 500 copies, and coming off their upcoming album ’Hot sauce Committee Pt.2’.
Beck and Bat for Lashes will release their collaboration ‘Let’s get Lost’, originally featured on the Twilight film soundtrack, another one limited to 500 copies, but there will be a bonus, an unreleased Bat for Lashes demo track entitled ‘Dark Time’.
Sigur Ros’ Jonsi will also release a 12” ‘Go Out’ EP featuring a collection of remixes from klive, WLD PTCH, and Fuck Buttons.
The White Stripes will re-release their first two singles ‘Let’s Shake Hands’ (with that cover of Marlene Dietrich’s ‘Look me Over Closely’) and ‘Lafayette Blues’ previously released in 1998.
But there are also Bad Brains, Daft Punk, Death Cab for Cutie, Foo Fighters, Gorillaz, R.E.M., The Decemberists, the Flaming Lips to name only a few, just go there: http://www.recordstoreday.com/Home
