Be sure to listen to the track in 1080p. It significantly upgrades the audio quality.
Staying up late continues to have its benefits as Radiohead debut the first song from their upcoming King of Limbs LP and move up the release date by a day. I’m hoping that means I’ll get an email soon with my digital download but until then, there’s “Lotus Flowers” to tide the eager musicworld over.
It’s a great track, no surprise. A great blend of Amnesiac‘s electronic beats and In Rainbow‘s flavor for melody. It’s a mellow bit of songcraft that is definitely very Radiohead. Had any other band made this track it surely would’ve been on a lower tier. The music video is a simple one: Thom Yorke dancing his crazy dances in black and white.
