'The King of Limbs' is the eighth studio album by English rock band Radiohead, first self-released on 18 February 2011 as a download in MP3 and WAV formats, followed by physical CD and vinyl releases on 28 March.
Following the protracted recording and more conventional rock instrumentation of 'In Rainbows' (2007), Radiohead developed 'The King of Limbs' by sampling and looping their recordings. Singer Thom Yorke described the album as an expression of "wildness" and "mutation."
Radiohead released no singles from the album but did release a music video for "Lotus Flower" that spawned an internet meme.
'The King of Limbs' was named one of the best albums of 2011 by publications including the Wire, the NME, and PopMatters, and was nominated for five categories in the 54th Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Music Album.
