This week Radiohead went off the grid just in time for the arrival of their new tune "Burn the Witch". But they are interestingly, back on, just in time to give us this new song/video "Burn the Witch" (below). The song will be available for download starting at midnight on Wednesday, May 4.
Burn The Witch.
Their FB and Twitter pages were all dark at a time when a band would depend on such outlets to spear-head the viral release of a new song. Ah but that's just not how Radiohead roll. Publicity be damned! The first resurfacing was here on their Instagram page, which says very little, but in the context of this story and after seeing their new video it's clear.

So now the question is...are you liking the new song? Are you feeling inspired? Will Radiohead's snub at the the pedestrian way of doing things today (social media) work for or against them? Will the music stand on it's own and resonate regardless of it's presence on your Twitter feed? And does Radiohead EVEN give a care what you think?
Ha! This is precisely WHY we ARE interested! (Well, I'll speak for myself) So see for yourself and spread the word because whether or not Radiohead wants your help, I'm sure they won't mind if you like it enough to buy it. 😉
Oh and just for posterity sake...I thought I'd include a video of Davey and Goliath. It just felt like the right thing right to do.
