Comment Party: Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool

Comment Party: Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool

After years of anticipation, months of rumors and cryptic clues, and one week of merciless teasing, Radiohead’s LP9 is finally out in the world, and it’s called A Moon Shaped Pool. It was recorded with Nigel Godrich at France’s La Fabrique Studio, and it features strings and choral vocals from the London Contemporary Orchestra conducted by Hugh Brunt. We’ve already heard and seen the videos for “Burn The Witch” and “Daydreaming,” and now you can find the rest of the album — which also includes familiar live cuts “Identikit,” “Desert Island Disk,” “Silent Spring” (now called “The Numbers”), and “True Love Waits” (!) — on Apple Music and iTunes, Amazon, and Tidal, but not on Spotify nor on Google Play Music (where it was accidentally released early today). Alternatively, you can purchase it in digital, CD, and 2xLP forms via, where Radiohead are also offering a special edition featuring a case-bound album inspired by the albums for 78rpm shellac records in the library of France’s La Fabrique, 32 pages of artwork, two LPs of the album, one CD of the album, one CD with two bonus tracks, and a piece of the actual master tape from one of the band’s many recording sessions.

Here’s the full tracklist:

01 “Burn The Witch”
02 “Daydreaming”
03 “Decks Dark”
04 “Desert Island Disk”
05 “Ful Stop”
06 “Glass Eyes”
07 “Identikit”
08 “The Numbers”
09 “Present Tense”
10 “Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief”
11 “True Love Waits”

A Moon Shaped Pool is out now via XL. The physical versions ship 6/17, and the special edition will be out sometime in September.

UPDATE: Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich has commented on the album’s release and shared some photos from the studio.

And here’s a tweet from Colin Greenwood…

UPDATE 2: Although A Moon Shaped Pool is not currently available on Spotify, a representative for the company tells Billboard that they’re trying to change that: “Radiohead’s new singles ‘Burn The Witch’ and ‘Daydreaming’ are already available on Spotify, and we look forward to making the rest of A Moon Shaped Pool available on Spotify as soon as we can.”
