Radiohead have announced that they will release their ‘From The Basement’ live session on DVD this December.
The performance, which saw the Oxford band play their latest album ‘The King Of Limbs’ in its entirety, is currently available for pre-order from Thekingoflimbs.com on DVD and Blu-Ray and will be shipped out before Christmas, although an official date has yet to be announced.
The package – which will not be available in retail stores until January 2012 – also includes a downloadable version of the performance, and a 32-page booklet of photographs taken during the recording session.
Radiohead played their ‘From The Basement’ session in August of this year, with long-term collaborator and producer Nigel Godrich. As well as playing tracks from ‘The King Of Limbs’, they also performed unreleased tracks such as ‘The Daily Mail’ and ‘Staircase’, as well as their Record Store Day single ‘Supercollider’.
Last month, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke revealed that the band were set to head to their Oxford studio this December and in January 2012 in order to work on new material.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, they announced the first leg of their planned 2012 world tour. They confirmed 10 US tour dates which will get underway next February.
