Let’s get nostalgic for a moment, Radiohead has been a staple in our music library since we can remember. The band’s been releasing music since 1985. That’s over three decades of music from the legendary Rock band, crazy, huh?
The band has recently announced the opening of its online public library. It is is an extensive and organized audio, visual, and physical archive. Visitors to the site will be able to signup and create their very own library card and membership number. After doing so, members have access to a highly-curated archive of the band’s catalog. Members will also have access to some hidden gems related to each album including, detailed artwork, official videos, ad-free live and tv performances, B-sides and compilation tracks, and previously out of print merchandise to be made on-demand. Members also have access to band members’ Office Chart playlists from around the time of In Rainbows, ‘The King Of Limbs’ and ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ recording sessions, and so much more!
The site is live now at radiohead.com, and to commemorate the library’s opening week, Colin & Jonny Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, Philip Selway, and Thom Yorke will each serve as librarian for a day starting January 20 through January 24. Each member will present a carefully chosen selection of material across the band’s social media channels.
If that’s not thrilling enough, several previously unavailable Radiohead rarities have been made available to stream and download. Those rarities include, the band’s 1992 debut, The Drill EP, ‘I Want None Of This’ from the 2005 charity compilation Help!: A Day In The Life, and 2011 TKOL RMX 8 remix EP. BRB, while we go sign up!
