Now we know the title, release dates and the cover of the Radiohead album, we’d just love to know the titles of those tracks. Let’s guess around.
Radiohead’s ‘The King Of Limbs‘ was their Valentine Project (as the source code of Radiohead.com says) and hit all the headlines on the internet, made it to trending topic on Twitter, Facebook, crashed a website and all that. The tracklisting remains a secret till Saturday. However, it seems that we do know that the album holds just 8 tracks. The website for pre-ordering ‘The King Of Limbs operated by Hostess Entertainment, who take care of distribution in Japan and Asia, says you will get 8 tracks as a download and on the CD accompanied with the Newspaper edition. That would be less than all the previous Radiohead studio albums.
Update: The Japanese The King Of Limbs site removed the line about the 8 tracks shortly after this post.
Tracks we’ve seen rehearsed, played, rumoured and are possibly a candidate for the new album are the following;
The Daily Mail
Mouse Dog Bird
Give Up The Ghost
Skirting On The Surface
Open The Floodgates
Let Me Take Control/Chris Hodge
Burn The Witch
Most of the above tracks are songs Thom Yorke played at solo shows and with his other band Atoms For Peace. Some of the others were rumoured tracks from the In Rainbows sessions and Radiohead live shows. Or can we expect an even older track finally recorded, like what happened to Nude on In Rainbows and Motion Picture Soundtrack on Kid A. Either way, let the guessing begin. Got anything to add? Post them below.
PS Yes, the message board will be back soon. Really.
