'A Moon Shaped Pool' was released digitally at 7pm with hard copies going on sale in June

Iconic British group Radiohead have released their new album - 'A Moon Shaped Pool' this evening.

The new album went on digital release at 7pm this evening and hard copies are expected to be available in record shops from June 17. 

This significant move is preceded by two recent releases of new singles that will feature on the album. On Tuesday, we had 'Burn The Witch,' which was followed by 'Daydreaming,' on Friday. A Moon Shaped Pool marks Radiohead’s ninth album to date and serves as the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs.

 

The new album consists of 11 songs, including the aforementioned teaser tracks. The tracklist also includes several songs previously debuted in a live setting. Among these are: 'Ful Stop,' 'Identikit,' 'Present Tense,' and 'Desert Island Disk.'

Newstalk resident broadcaster Tom Dunne played the first national exclusive play of 'A Moon Shaped Pool' on his show tonight. He was also joined by Off The Ball's Richie McCormack with this week's music news.
