Radiohead have shared a “music video blip” inspired by their song ‘The Numbers’, which appears on new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’.
The 30-second video, which shows a man tidying his room as sand pours onto the floor from the ceiling, was directed by Oscar Hudson. Writing on his website, Hudson explained that he was “delighted” to be involved with the band.
Hudson, who has previously made videos for Darwin Deez and Songhoy Blues among others, wrote : “I was asked to interpret a 30 second clip of music from Radiohead’s new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’. I was obviously delighted to do so.”
All week Radiohead have been sharing myserious artwork through their Instagram channel. The latest image shows an alleyway in black and white. Unlike the art shared on Monday, this new picture comes complete with a caption. It reads: “You are lost.”
The pieces could be part of a series of artist-created vignettes that the band announced last week. Radiohead recently opened their new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ up to a number of visual artists, with the first work displayed online last Friday (13 May).
However, these new pieces come without artist attribution, and the style looks similar to the work of Stanley Donwood, Radiohead’s long-term visual collaborator who designed the official artwork for ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’.
Radiohead return to live duty tonight in Amsterdam (May 20). A run of three London shows will take place next week before the band headline Primavera in Spain in June.
