Radiohead’s ninth studio album A Moon Shaped Pool was released earlier today (May 8). It’s their first LP in five years, following their 2011 album The King of Limbs

Radiohead’s worked with their longstanding collaborator Nigel Godrich for his production skills. Godrich has recorded all of Radiohead’s album except their debut, and has also produced Thom Yorke’s solo albums. Godrich took to Twitter to discuss the making of the recent album and shared two photos (one of which is featured below). On Twitter, he wrote:

A Moon Shaped Pool includes “Daydreaming” and “Burn the Witch,” which were released this past week. Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed the music video for “Daydreaming,” recently sent 35mm film copies of the video to play in select theaters. The copies came with a message that said, “We’ve made a film, here it is. We’d be happy if you played it!” A number of theaters have begun to show the music video.
