When I first heard the latest Radiohead release, King of Limbs, I was struck by the 'remix friendly' nature of the tracks. This was a record whose very structure and instrumentation could be wholly dissected and creatively rearranged to entirely different ends. The fan envisaged The King of Limbs Part 2, perhaps? I think this might just be so much more; this series will feature a host of the best remix producers on the planet.
The band has announced today that next month they will start rolling out a series of limited-edition twelve-inches featuring remixes from their last full length. (Or perhaps more accurately three quarter length, it was a little short by all standards). The first release will feature remixes of "Little By Little" by Caribou and "Lotus Flower" by Jacques Greene, and will be available on July 4th . (July 5th in North America.)
