Dismiss your dodgy downloads and ignore inferior imitations, 104.9 Xfm will be playing the already legendary first single from Radiohead’s new album “Hail To The Thief” on Monday (April 14).
The term “highly anticipated” is something of an understatement, as the recent leaking of the “Hail To The Thief”, a series of instantly sold out UK gigs and an upcoming Glastonbury appearance have all whipped up a frenzy of interest about the new Radiohead album.
Now you can make up your own mind whether Thom Yorke and co have delivered the goods, when Zo? Ball plays out the new single “There There” live on her drivetime show starting at 4.00pm on Monday April 14. Not the unmastered, unmixed, shoddy version that has surfaced on the internet but the proper, actual, complete, kosher, de facto Radiohead-approved single.
Phil Selway and Ed O’Brien from the band will also be joining Zo? for an interview on her show on Tuesday May 28, and as if that wasn’t enough, in a world exclusive, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke will be giving 104.9 Xfm a track-by-track guide to a complete full album playback of “Hail To The Thief” on John Kennedy’s X-posure show, on Tuesday June 3.
For all the latest news and information about Radiohead keep it on 104.9 Xfm and www.xfm.co.uk.
“There There” will still be released on May 26 with the “Hail To The Thief” set to be launched officially on June 9, both on Parlophone Records.
In other news, BBC Radio 1 will be debuting “There There” on the Jo Whiley Show starting at 10:00 am.
