Radiohead’s The King of Limbs was released one year ago today

It was exactly one year ago today that Radiohead released The King of Limbs. It was released one day earlier than originally scheduled.  It was originally scheduled to be released as a download on Saturday, February 19th.

In a message from Ed O’Brien on the band’s website, he said: “It’s Friday… It’s almost the weekend…It’s a full moon…. You can download ‘The King of Limbs’ now if you so wish! Thank you good people for waiting…  Have a great weekend wherever you are….”

A music video for “Lotus Flower” debuted in Tokyo, Japan on this day.  It was also around this time when people noticed that Chieftan Mews had a Twitter account.  On February 15th, 2011 he tweeted: “I’m hidden in your 8-track“, before the track-listing for The King Of Limbs was revealed.

It was also the day the rumors started that there might be a Part 2 to The King Of Limbs , which is when I started The King Of Limbs Part 2 Blog.  I originally thought that it would only last a couple of days and maybe only a few hundred people would even be interested in reading it, but it continued to grow and eventually became the site it is today.

Thanks to everyone that’s visited the site over the past year, and to everyone that helped contribute to the site.
