Can someone please tell us, where has Radiohead gone? It seems Radiohead has decided to delete itself from the internet.
In a story broken by users of Reddit, the social news networking service, users observed that the British band’s official website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts had been stripped of all their content.
Let’s start with the homepage of the Radiohead website, www.radiohead.co.uk. This is now a blank white page. Next, the band’s official Twitter account, @radiohead, which has a huge following of 1.58 million followers, now is without any tweets whatsoever. Lastly, the band’s Facebook page, with over 11.8 million likes, has also become a blank canvas with no words, pictures or posts to be found.
As for the band’s singer Thom Yorke, he has deleted all tweets from his personal Twitter account @thomyorke.
So what do we surmise from all of this?
Fans of the band have speculated that Radiohead’s cleansing of all social media heralds the release of the band’s new album.
Other hints that new material is forthcoming include flyers that some Radiohead fans received on Saturday, 30 April, in the post containing the words: “Sing a song of sixpence that goes / Burn the Witch / We know where you live”. Add the fact that the band registered the name of two new companies called Dawn Corus LLP and Dawnchoruss Ltd in February of this year and announced a world tour— you’ve got the perfect set up for a brand new album.
This would be Radiohead’s ninth release, following on from:
- 1993 – Pablo Honey
- 1995 – The Bends
- 1997 – OK Computer
- 2000 – Kid A
- 2001 – Amnesiac
- 2003 – Hail to the Thief
- 2007 – In Rainbows
- 2011 – The King of Limbs
