Radiohead appear to be revealing details of their new album, rumoured to be due for release in 2008, on their new website.
Fans are convinced that the band are communicating information about their seventh album through a code, and have cracked what they think are the very first details of its track listing.
A series of ‘Radiohead hieroglyphs’ appear by clicking on the link ‘Hodiau Direkton’.
The first code, which appeared on September 20, was deciphered as stating: ‘Yes we are still alive’.
A further posting on September 21 reads: ‘Blink your eyes one for yes two for no code code code.’
Fans posting on the band’s message board have deciphered that these are in fact the lyrics for new song ‘Bodysnatchers’.
So far all the messages have been decoded as:
September 20: YES WE ARE STILL ALIVE
September 21: BLINK YOUR EYES ONE FOR YES TWO FOR NO CODE CODE CODE
September 22: PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY – although it appeared with the possibly deliberate error as PLAUSIBLE ENIAABILITZ
September 22: XENDLESS
September 23: MIGHT NOT OPERATE PROPERLY
September 24: A FLATLINE WE ARE IN A MEETING
September 25: CONSIDERING DISSEMINATION
