Radiohead are releasing their new album 'The King Of Limbs' on Saturday (February 19).

The band announced the news on their official website, Radiohead.com, this morning (February 14). It is available to order online at Thekingoflimbs.com.

The record will be available as a download from Saturday, then released physically on May 9 as what the band are billing as a 'newspaper album'.

The 'newspaper album' package will contain 'The King Of Limbs' on CD, two 10-inch vinyl records and artwork sheets. Those who buy the set will also receive the album as a download on Saturday.

The album will be the band's first since 2007's 'In Rainbows', which they released as a pay-what-you-like download.

The name of the new album relates to an oak tree in Wiltshire's Savernake Forest, thought to be around 1,000 years old. The forest lies around three miles away from Tottenham House, a listed country house where Radiohead recorded part of 'In Rainbows'.

The tree is a pollarded oak, referring to an ancient technique for harvesting timber for fencing and firewood. The phrase also appears in the 23rd chapter of the Qu'ran.
