After a false alarm, believed to be a hoax, Radiohead have officially revealed their seventh album is ready, and will be available for download in just ten days’ time.

In a shock announcement on their official website today (September 30), a message from guitarist Jonny Greenwood read: “Hello everyone. Well, the new album is finished, and it's coming out in 10 days; We've called it 'In Rainbows'. Love from us all. Jonny

As if that news wasn’t a big enough bombshell, the band have not set a price for the download version of the album, leaving the ‘price’ field blank and letting the customer decide how much to pay for the release.

Greenwood’s message linked to this site where the album has been made available to pre-order as a download and a discbox. The download version will be available on October 10, while the discbox will be ready to ship on or before December 3.

The discbox, costing £40, contains the new album ‘In Rainbows’ on CD, and on two 12” heavyweight vinyl records. There is also a second enhanced CD containing more new songs, along with digital photographs and artwork. The set also includes lyric booklets and all are encased in a hardback book and slipcase.

’In Rainbows’ track listing is:

‘15 Step’
‘Bodysnatchers’
‘Nude’
‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’
‘All I Need’
‘Faust Arp’
‘Reckoner’
‘House Of Cards’
‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place’
‘Videotape’


Meanwhile, the second CD to be included in the discbox features a further eight new songs. Those are:


‘MK 1’
‘Down Is The New Up’
‘Go Slowly’
‘MK 2’
‘Last Flowers’
‘Up On The Ladder’
‘Bangers And Mash’
‘4 Minute Warning’


Anyone who buys the boxset will automatically be able to download the album from October 10.

The album, the band’s seventh studio effort, will only be available exclusive through Radiohead.com for now, but Radiohead say they are current planning a “traditional CD release” of ’In Rainbows’ for early next year.
