Unless you downloaded The King of Limbs (TMT Review) illegally, you didn’t have the option to get the album for free like you did with In Rainbows (TMT Review) and its pay-what-you-want model. But don’t worry, because you now have the option of getting a free newspaper called The Universal Sigh! On Tuesday, March 29 (Monday, March 29 for those outside the US and Canada), Radiohead will have “accredited vendors” deliver the limited-edition newspaper at various locations all over the world in celebration of the physical release of The King of Limbs.
Worried about the energy you’ll consume to get there? Don’t, because who gives a shit, right? Well, apparently, Radiohead do. According to the fancy website set up for The Universal Sigh, “Radiohead will measure the carbon footprint of this project, and to offset the potential ecological impact we will retire the carbon credits used.”
