Radiohead have debuted a brand new track called 'Staircase' online.

The track, which comes from the same sessions as recent album 'The King Of Limbs', emerged on the band’s Dead Air Space site today (June 21).

The murky, heavily rhythmic track is reminiscent of the funkier moments from 'The King Of Limbs', yet boasts a more persuasive melody. You can hear the track by scrolling down.


The song is a bonus extra from the Oxford band's unique session for producer Nigel Godrich's From The Basement project, a podcast turned TV show. In 2008 the band did a similar session for previous album 'In Rainbows'.

The performance will be broadcast internationally on July 1 via BBC Worldwide. With the band having yet to announce any live dates, the session will be fans’ first opportunity to hear them perform material from 'The King Of Limbs' live.

Salim Mukaddam, VP Music Television at BBC Worldwide said recently: "It is a real honour to be working with Radiohead on this project. Radiohead are a band that rarely performs for television, but when they do, it's a moment to savour. There is already huge anticipation for this performance and we’re delighted that they've decided to work with us at BBC Worldwide, confirming our position as market leaders in music television. As a fan I cannot wait to see these beautiful songs brought to life in this programme."

Bryce Edge from Radiohead's management added: "This will be Radiohead's first collaboration with BBC Worldwide and the band are excited at the prospect of having their first live performance of 'The King of Limbs' broadcast around the world. The band will be filmed and recorded by the From The Basement team, which includes Nigel Godrich their long time producer, Dilly Gent ,who commissioned many of the memorable Radiohead videos and Grant Gee who filmed the Radiohead documentary 'Meeting People is Easy'."
