Check Out Track-List and Artwork Below.
After the surprise release of two new tracks, ‘Daydreaming‘ and ‘Burn The Witch’, Radiohead have released their ninth album A Moon Shaped Pool. There’s no word on the inspiration for the title but The Moon Pool is the name of a fantasy novel by Abraham Merritt which is available online. The novel is an extension of the ‘lost world’ genre of literature, of which Journey to the Centre of the Earth is probably the most famous example. A moon pool is also a feature of marine drilling. It is an opening in the hull through which tools and instruments can be lowered into the sea. Both of these probably have nothing to do with the album. But you’ve just learned something. You’re welcome.
Radiohead are offering the album for download via iTunes and Apple Music. Stream it and download it here. The band are also hocking 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. Get that on amoonshapedpool.com.
