As Thom’s on holiday from newspaper delivery, Radiohead will have a new single out this weekend. It’s a Record Store Day 12″ but it won’t be available in the States. So while you wait for “Supercollider” b/w “The Butcher” to appear on eBay check out these streams of the vinyl audio:
These tracks are the last you’ll hear from the King Of Limbs sessions according to a BBC 6 Music Q&A with Ed O’Brien. “‘The Butcher’ is from the [those] sessions,” said the guitarist. “‘Supercollider’ was recorded during that period and finished off after the album came out.”
Savor ‘em. And check out our guide to The 11 Most Interesting Record Store Day Releases.
UPDATE via Radiohead.com:
You may have heard that tomorrow we will be releasing two tracks, Supercollider and The Butcher on 12″ vinyl through participating stores for Record Store Day.
This vinyl will also available in the USA & Canada on the 14th June.
Unfortunately, due to err…unforeseen circumstances that we didn’t foresee, some of the vinyl have the labels on the wrong way around. It is too late to recall the vinyl and stick them on the right way round, so here is a copy of the labels for those of you who wish to download, print, cut out and stick on yourself with pritt stick (other glues are available) thus correcting the error. Or we could just rename the songs.
Apologies for any confusion caused and have a happy Record Store Day.
In England they call glue sticks lorries.
