For those of you without plans for New Year’s Eve—and you don’t have to tell us who you are—you should refrain from being too square by warming up next to your computer or in front of your television to check out the broadcast debut of Radiohead’s new album.
According to Billboard, the British rock band will perform its new album, In Rainbows, in its entirety during a pre-taped, hour long set that will premiere New Year’s Eve on TV and the Internet. The event will air on Current TV and Current.com starting at 12 a.m. EST on December 31 and will repeat three times throughout the next day.
Radiohead held a similar webcast early in November. The band played new material in addition to covers like the Smiths’ “The Headmaster Ritual,” Bjork’s “Unravel” and New Order’s “Ceremony.”
In Rainbows will go on sale in stores next week.
