Surprise! Radiohead Released a New Song, Bet You Didn’t See That Coming [Video]

Bet you were thinking that with the news of a huge tour and the slow scrubbing of their internet presence that Radiohead was about to announce that they were no longer a band. Well, joke’s on you because they released a song today! “Burn the Witch” appeared on their YouTube account, and it has all the hallmarks of a Radiohead song — Thom Yorke singing in his unique falsetto, layered and exceptionally complex percussive elements, a birdsong and whining strings. The video reveals some amazing stop motion that basically just retells The Wicker Man. So, just remember as you go forward with your day, “not the bees. Please, not the bees.”
