Radiohead’s newest album, A Moon Shaped Pool, will be available for streaming on Spotify from Friday, June 17>.

The band’s ninth studio album, which features singles “Burn The Witch” and “Daydreaming“, has been available on rival streaming services Apple Music and Tidal since its release on May 8.

A message on the band’s Spotify artist page states “Radiohead’s latest album will be available from 17th June…come back then to listen”, confirming what will be a notable U-turn in the band’s inflammatory relationship with the streaming service.


In 2013, Thom Yorke called the service “the last desperate fart of a dying corpse”, while Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich tweeted “new artists get paid f***-all with this model” as he pulled the band’s music from the app.

Radiohead’s online campaign for A Moon Shaped Pool has been far from traditional. The band recently erased their entire social media presence, dispatching instead a cryptic selection of enveloped flyers to select fans.
