BBC Worldwide Music Television has signed a deal with Radiohead to distribute internationally a new and exclusive live performance of Radiohead’s eighth album.
The King of Limbs album was released digitally in February 2011 and physically at the end of March 2011, yet this special performance will be the first time the band will have played this song cycle in public. The band will be performing for the much lauded music show ‘From the Basement’, the brain child of Radiohead production guru Nigel Godrich. (Previously the band performed selections from In Rainbows on the same show in 2008).
