Radiohead – “Burn The Witch” Video

Those “Burn The Witch” mailers and Instagram teasers were leading up to the debut of Radiohead’s “Burn The Witch” video. The track bridges symphonics, electronics, and acoustic-oriented rock, and it’s matched with Chris Hopewell’s Wicker Man-inspired claymation visions. “This is a roundup,” Thom Yorke intones. “This is a low-flying panic attack.” Watch below.

“Burn The Witch” will be available on all digital services at midnight.

UPDATE: The song is available now on many services including iTunes, Bleep, Boomkat, and (somewhat surprisingly) Spotify. It’s also for sale via Radiohead’s own W.A.S.T.E. store.
