How Do I Get Radiohead's Limited 'Burn the Witch' 7" Single?

Posted by Amoebite, May 13, 2016 04:00pm | Post a Comment

Radiohead Burn the Witch

Radiohead's long-awaited new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, is out on June 17th. Ahead of the full album, the band is releasing an extremely limited "Burn the Witch" / "Spectre" 7". The 7" contains the first single from the new album, as well as a track originally meant to be the theme song to the James Bond film, Spectre

Quantities of this 7" are very, very limited and demand for it is extraordinarily high. We just found out that we were not allocated as many copies as we ordered. Per the rules set by Radiohead and XL Recordings, this 7" can only be sold in-store and cannot be sold online. So to be as fair as possible, we're handling sales of this 7" differently at Amoeba Hollywood, Amoeba SF, and Amoeba Berkeley.

Fans who wish to purchase the 7" must pre-order Radiohead's new album in-store at Amoeba Hollywood, Amoeba SF, or Amoeba Berkeley beginning Monday, May 16th. You will be entered into a lottery for the chance to own this extremely limited 7". We will contact the winners via email Tuesday, May 17 at 12pm. Winners will need to come into the store to purchase the 7" by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 18th.

What If I Already Pre-Ordered A Moon Shaped Pool on Amoeba.com?

No problem! We'll enter your name into the lottery. However, should your name be drawn, you must be able to come into Amoeba Hollywood, San Francisco or Berkeley by the close of business on Wednesday, May 18th to purchase your copy of the 7".

radioheadRadiohead recently revealed a couple of new songs and then promptly dropped information on the release of their ninth album, A Moon Shaped Pool, which will come out June 17 on LP, limited color vinyl and CD. You can preorder from Amoeba now.

radiohead a moon shaped pool lpHere's a breakdown of what recently went down in the world of Radiohead. First, the band deleted its online presence May 1, leading to speculation about a new album. Then, May 3, the band released a new single and stop-motion animation video, "Burn the Witch," which you can watch below. Then, May 6, the band released another video, from The Master director Paul Thomas Anderson, for the song "Daydreaming." Both songs feature a symphonic sound more in line with guitarist Jonny Greenwood's recent soundtrack work and less like the more digital sound found on the last Radiohead album, The King of Limbs, as well as Thom Yorke's solo work and supergroup project, Atoms for Peace. Then the album was released digitally over this past weekend, and the band announced details for the physical album, which brings us up to speed.
