It roughly translates as: “Hachiko Square Shibuya, 59 minutes at 18 Friday”. The square is one of the notoriously busy ‘pedestrian roads’ in Tokyo.
Fans are now speculating that the band may appear at the square at 18:59 (JST) tomorrow, which would be 9:59am UK time. Radiohead have so far not elaborated on what the message means, and their spokesperson said they would not be commenting on the tweet.
Their new album ‘The King Of Limbs’ is tipped to feature eight songs, although the band have said that they will not release tracklisting details ahead of its release.
