Accompanying the news that Radiohead’s new album, The King of Limbs, is actually available to download from today instead of tomorrow, a video for new single Lotus Flower appeared on the band’s YouTube channel earlier…
The video, directed by Garth Jennings, features a lone Thom Yorke dancing his little self around, complete with that archetype of jazz and tap, a bowler hat. His jerky, twitchy moves were choreographed by Wayne McGregor. The director of photography on the film was Nick Wood.
The track, incidentally, sounds a bit like a not-so-fired up Idiotheque from Kid A.
