Further Details Emerge for Radiohead's 'A Moon Shaped Pool' Record Store Event
Published Jun 14, 2016Late last week, Radiohead announced a series of special events in record stores around the world to celebrate the physical release of their latest studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool. Now, a participating retailer in the UK has leaked further details of what to expect in stores on June 17.
As FACT reports, participating UK shop Resident has revealed that the day will feature "an exclusive audio broadcast of material specially curated by the band as well as a very special 2-hour live set of performances from their latest tour, featuring songs from the new album & favourites from the Radiohead catalogue." Artwork from collaborator Stanley Donwood will also be available to fans.
What's more, attendees will have a chance to enter a global raffle at each participating store for some exclusive prizes. A first place winner will receive a selection of figurines from the band's stop-motion video for "Burn the Witch"; two second prize winners will take home original screen prints of Donwood's series of artwork for the record; and three third prize winners will receive 35mm celluloid prints of Paul Thomas Anderson's "Daydreaming" music video, housed in a film canister.
