Radiohead share new song ‘Burn The Witch’ – watch stop-motion video now

Clip comes ahead of band's rumoured new album

Radiohead have shared a brand new track, titled ‘Burn The Witch’.

The band have unveiled a stop-motion video for the song, directed by Chris Hopewell and featuring a cast of Trumpton / Camberwick Green-style puppets.

They have also posted two new pictures to Facebook, what could be artwork for their new album or single release. Scroll below to see.

‘Burn The Witch’ will be released on all digital services from Wednesday (May 4).

It follows recent rumours about a possible new Radiohead album and a series of teaser videos that the band released to their social media accounts earlier on Tuesday (May 3).


On Sunday (May 1), the band wiped everything from their social media accounts and their official website faded to white. In addition to this, band members Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Colin Greenwood all faded out their personal social media accounts also.

It came only a day after fans received a series of mysterious flyers in the post, which read: “Sing a song of sixpence that goes/Burn the Witch/We know where you live.”

In January, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the band had quietly established a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP in October 2015 – which had previously done ahead of the band’s previous two albums.

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.
