This spring is proving to be an exciting season for Radiohead fans. Following close on the heels of this weekend’s digital release of their new album, the band’s discography will be reissued on vinyl later this month.
As Pitchfork reports, XL Recordings will be releasing new vinyl editions of Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, The King of Limbs, and the 2001 live album I Might Be Wrong on May 20th. Kid A and Amnesiac will appear in their earlier special-edition double 10-inch format.
XL recently acquired Radiohead’s back catalog from Parlophone. In early April, a spokesperson for XL explained the disappearance of the band’s B-sides, live tracks and other non-LP songs from major streaming services, saying, “This is the first step in the transfer of Radiohead’s back catalogue from Parlophone to XL. The main albums are being made available in their original form as a start, before non-LP material is reconfigured.”
Radiohead announced on Friday morning that their long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s King of Limbs will come out in digital form on Sunday, May 8th, with the physical album following on June 17th. The announcement of the as-yet-untitled studio album, the band’s ninth, was accompanied by the haunting new single, “Daydreaming,” and its Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video.
The Radiohead reissue isn’t the only—or the biggest—vinyl news coming out today. Pink Floyd announced that they will begin reissuing their own discography on vinyl this spring. The first batch, arriving on June 3rd, features the band’s first four full-length albums: 1967’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets and 1969’s More soundtrack and Ummagumma double-LP.
