Radiohead goes stop-motion for new video, song “Burn The Witch”

Radiohead Burn The Witch

After spending the last few days slowly removing themselves from social media, Radiohead dropped a new song and video yesterday, entitled “Burn The Witch.” The weird promotion, song, and video are all very Radiohead.

The song itself is great, with Thom Yorke’s vocals floating over a beautiful and haunting collection of strings. The video is fully stop-motion animated, and depicts an inspector visiting a town where everything is just a little bit off. The aesthetic of the video might seem a bit familiar, and the final twist is reminiscent of a rather notorious film ending from both the 1970s and the mid 2000s. The animation is great, and the whole concept makes for a fascinating video. You can check out the visuals below.

Radiohead will be performing across the globe this summer, so it’s likely the tour plus the new song are signs of an album coming soon.
