Seven-inch release appears to be coming on May 16
As Pitchfork notes, a listing on the website for independent record store chain Bull Moose appears to show that ‘Burn The Witch’ will be released as a 7″ single on May 16. The listing claims that the release will be an “indie exclusive”, suggesting it will only be available at independent record stores.
The single will reportedly be backed by ‘Spectre’, which Radiohead originally penned for the James Bond movie of the same name. Sam Smith’s ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ was later used as the official Spectre single and Radiohead’s track was released online at Christmas.
NME has approached press representatives of Radiohead for a comment on the reports.

Radiohead’s rumoured new album will be their first since 2011’s ‘The King of Limbs’.
During a talk in April, Brian Message, a partner of Radiohead’s management company, reportedly revealed that the band’s new album will be released in June.
Radiohead’s long-time visual collaborator Stanley Donwood said earlier this year (March) that he has heard the band’s new album, describing the LP as “a work of art”, though he also said at the time that the record is not yet finished.
