Radiohead offered a new song for free download Monday, These Are My Twisted Words, which is available from the band's official Web site.
We've been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished. We're pretty proud of it, multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood writes on the site. There's other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we've been practicing, and which we'll probably play at this summer's concerts. Hope you like it.
There was, however, no full EP on offer, contrary to speculation online about such a release after These Are My Twisted Words was leaked to fan site At Ease's message board last week and then appeared on YouTube.
Radiohead does not have a long-term label deal at present. The band released its 2007 set, In Rainbows, via its own Web site on a pay-what-you-want basis for the MP3 and followed that with a full release in January 2008 via XL Recordings in the U.K and ATO/Red in the U.S.
Radiohead is rehearsing for festival appearances including Leeds and Reading (August 29 and 30) in the U.K.
On August 5, it issued the digital track Harry Patch (In Memory Of), with proceeds going to the British Legion, the U.K. charity that supports the armed forces and its veterans. Harry Patch, who died aged 111 on July 25, was Britain's last surviving veteran of World War I.
