Radiohead have confirmed that their new album 'The King Of Limbs' will be released physically next month.

Yesterday (February 14) the band announced that the album will be released as a download on Saturday (19). Now their spokesperson has confirmed to NME that it will be released on CD and 12-inch vinyl on March 28.

The album is also set to be released as what the band are calling a 'newspaper album' package on May 9. The set includes the album on CD and vinyl plus artwork sheets.

'The King Of Limbs' will be the band's first album since 2007's 'In Rainbows', which they released as a pay-what-you-like download. The new record, as was the case for 'In Rainbows', saw long-time collaborator Nigel Godrich on production duties.

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.

Radiohead fansite Ateaseweb.com crashed under the weight of hits yesterday morning as fans searched for information about the new album.
