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.

Pitchfork points out that longtime Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood has shared some behind-the-scenes photos from the “Burn The Witch” video.

So I guess we just made a Radiohead video! It's for their new track 'Burn the Witch'. Thank you all for your kind words – it does mean a lot to know it's going down well. The whole video was conceived, designed, built and animated in 14 days, we finished last Thursday. I am immensely proud of everyone that worked their asses off on it – for many of them it was their first film. I shall introduce them in later posts… But for now thank you! You where all bloody brilliant!!! Big love to you all! #Radiohead #burnthewitch #musicvidio
