Radiohead’s exciting week continues, as a new song, “Daydreaming,” has been released. It comes with an accompanying video starring frontman Thom Yorke and directed by filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson. Oh, and the band’s new album is out on Sunday (May 8).
“Daydreaming” is a more subdued listen than lead single “Burn the Witch,” which was released earlier this week. Fans of songs like “Nude” and “Pyramid Song” will love the ethereal nature of the track, which gets a video starring Yorke as a wanderer constantly moving into different environments, searching for something unknown. He finally stops when he reaches… well, we won’t spoil the finale.
Radiohead’s follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs has yet to receive a title, but a YouTube caption reveals that the album will be released on Sunday at 7 p.m. BST. Cryptic teasers have been released leading up to the album, including an Instagram tease for the “Daydreaming” clip.
