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".

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.

UK Inmates Allowed String Guitars Thanks To Campaign Led By Billy Bragg

Billy Bragg "A New England (live at Amoeba San Francisco: October 2013)"

As reported today by British media outlets including the NME (New Music Express) UK inmates will finally be allowed use of string guitars thanks to a campaign led by Billy Bragg and including such other musicians as Johnny Marr, Dave Gilmour, and Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Philip Selway. The political campaign which was kick-started by Cardiff West MP Kevin Brennan, with Bragg leading the musicians in the crusade for prisoners' rights, set about overturning the long-standing ban on steel-string guitars in British prisons. According to UK prison authorities, the guitar ban was based on fear of their parts being used as weapons. "This is a victory for common sense and I'm pleased after months of campaigning the UK Government has listened," said the Cardiff West MP upon hearing news of the lift of the ban.

"The power of music to help prisoners to rehabilitate is well documented. I started the campaign after prisoners wrote to me explaining how they had saved from their small prison wages to buy guitars and how therapeutic learning to play the guitar had been for them before the ban," added the MP. Billy Bragg noted upon news of the lifting of the ban that prisoners being allowed use of steel string guitars, "can really help the atmosphere on a prison wing." A long time champion of the underdog and with a history of fighting against civil injustices, Bragg founded the Jail Guitar Doors rehabilitation initiative to try and overthrow the ban against ban arguing that guitar playing helps greatly in the rehabilitation process of inmates.
