In a recent interview with Rollingstone magazine, Radiohead frontman Thom York stated that he could see why their 8th studio release “King Of Limbs” alienated some of their fan-base.
The CD was released in February last year with almost no promotion and only a weeks notice to the public before the release date.
‘It was amazing just to put the record out like that. But then it didn’t feel like it really existed…But that was the consequence of what we chose to do. You can either get upset about it, or say; well, that’s not good enough.'”
He regarding the poly-rhythms and esoteric sounds on the album, he added “I can see why it’s alienated people. I didn’t realise it was on its own planet”.
