Radiohead fans are chewing their nails down to the hilt this week?

Why? Because, just a few days ago, the band announced that their new record The King of Limbs will be released on Saturday, February 19, both as a "newspaper album" and a digital download. It's the band's first release since In Rainbows in 2007.

The album art kind of speaks for itself, but NME reports that "The King of Limbs" refers to an oak tree in South England, as well as the 23rd chapter of Qur'an. Fairly interesting subject matter, we hope. As interesting as the topics at the center of past Radiohead albums, though? Tough to say.

In honor of new release, we recently ran Radiohead's lyrics (from the excellent Green Plastic Trees) through Wordle's awesome word cloud function. All of their lyrics. The results are pretty interesting. Check them out after the jump.

1. Pablo Honey

2. The Bends

3. OK Computer

4. Kid A

5. Amnesiac

6. Hail to the Thief

7. In Rainbows

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
