In 2011, Radiohead released their eighth studio album The King of Limbs, handed out newspapers to promote it, played some intimate shows in New York City, didn’t play for Occupy Wall Street (then did) and released a lengthy remix album. What else is left? Next week, two songs from the Limbs sessions that appeared in Radiohead’s From the Basement concert broadcast will hit your favorite digital retailer: “The Daily Mail” and “Staircase.” Both tracks have been in live rotation this year and were commonly thought of as songs that could’ve bolstered Limbs standings within the Radiohead community. Right now, our (unscientific) calculations places Limbs somewhere between The Pyramid Song EP and Hail to the Thief in terms of likability.
We suggest splicing these songs into your own copy and create that perfect version of Limbs you’ve always dreamed about.
The King of Limbs — From the Basement arrives January 31 on DVD/Blu Ray.
