Posted: March 24, 2011 in News + Reviews

When Radiohead announced their new album, The King Of Limbs, on February 14, they said it was going to be the first newspaper album. The actual Newspaper album will not arrive till early May, but Radiohead are set to issue a Newspaper on the date of the physical retail release.

Fans will be able to acquire a newspaper made by the band. The newspaper will be distributed in many capital cities around the world. The Radiohead album ‘The King of Limbs’ will be available for purchase in all good record stores everywhere on Monday 28th March, except in the United States of America and in Canada, where it will be available from Tuesday 29th March. On VINYL! On COMPACT DISC! As a DOWNLOAD!

To commemorate this momentous occasion, Radiohead have produced a newspaper which will be given away, free, gratis, without cost to the consumer by accredited vendors from a multitude of locations WORLDWIDE! In the USA, in the Netherlands, in Belgium, Poland, Germany, Austria, in the Czech Republic, in Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Ireland, France, Italy, Slovakia, Finland, Greece, Norway, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, Australia, Latvia, Iceland, Romania, New Zealand, the UK and a load of other places around the globe, our dedicated teams of newspaper delivery people will be handing out copies of THE UNIVERSAL SIGH to anyone who wants one, until we run out!

In conjunction with this unbelievable offer, Radiohead have established THE UNIVERSAL SIGH as a website on the internet, where details of your nearest vendor can be found, as well as more informations and a photogallery where we will be posting photos and the lucky owners of the gratis tabloid are invited to post pictures of themselves and their friends reading the newspaper in locations diverse and unusual.

The band state that there will be other stuff too, “but we haven’t thought of it yet.” But, just in case you were wondering: This newspaper IS NOT the newspaper that accompanies the Newspaper Album version of The King of Limbs. This event WILL NOT be repeated. This event IS NOT a live performance by Radiohead.

The event will be all around the world as a website will be operational which will host photos of people who have obtained the newspaper, The Universal Sigh, as photos will appear on
