Radiohead’s presence online has been steadily removed from the web. Fans on Reddit have been recording the transition on Radiohead’s website where the opacity for the page has been slowly fading to white.
Currently, Radiohead’s Twitter and Facebook pages are completely blank. Additionally, Thom Yorke’s Twitter is also contentless. The drawn-out disappearance has fans speculating that a new album is on the way soon.
Beginning this weekend, fans who pre-ordered Radiohead’s forthcoming album received cryptic messages in the mail in the form of physical leaflets. Inside was the message written, “Sing a song of sixpence that goes / Burn the Witch / We know where you live." This definitely seems like a marketing campaign for a soon-to-be album rollout.
The band’s manager Brian Message has been quoted as saying that the new album will be arriving in June of this year. Their last studio album was The King of Limbs, released in 2011.
