Radiohead has officially launched their Radiohead Public Library, a comprehensive archive of all things Radiohead. To commemorate the launch, the band have also released a selection of rarities.
The archive is designed to bring a bit of order to the wide-range of Radiohead trivia, rare songs, videos, and performances that are cast across the online world. You can find the full Radiohead Public Library here.
To coincide with the launch the band have also released some rarities for the first time online. Among them is the band’s debut EP Drill as well as some loose numbers too—all of which will have Radiohead fans clambering for their nearest Spotify account.
The Radiohead Public Library collates the videos, photos, and rarities through a library format and even offers patrons the chance to create his own library cards. Once that’s complete they can then explore some of the best visuals, artefacts and best bits of Radiohead in a “highly curated and organised archive.”
The archive contains everything from artwork to music videos, from HD live and TV performances to the band’s preferred playlists, with B-sides and out-of-commission merchandise completing an enticing prospect.
During this week, each member of Radiohead will spend a day as the site’s librarian, curating material and using the band’s social media to share their personal favourites.
For now, listen to the previously unreleased tracks below.
