New details have appeared regarding Radiohead’s mysterious “worldwide event” this Friday.
The band previously detailed the event held at participating record stores across the globe would include “an exclusive day long audio stream, competitions, instructional artworks and more.” Now, one record store in London has revealed more about every aspect including some prizes that should have Radiohead fans going feral.
The event will include an audio broadcast arranged by the band as well as a “very special” two-hour live set featuring songs from A Moon Shaped Pool and old favorites. They will also have “instructional” prints created by longtime Radiohead album artist Stanley Donwood based on the experiences of designing the artwork (which the band has continued to showcase on their Instagram).
Finally there are the prizes that will be given out in a raffle which fans can only sign up for in-person at participating stores and they are worth it. The first prize winner will be given a selection of the Trumpton-style figurine used to disturbing effect in Chris Hopewell’s ‘Burn The Witch’ video. The two second prize winners will receive original screenprints from Stanley Donwood’s artwork series for the album. Finally, three third prize winners will receive original 35mm celluloid prints of Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Daydreaming’ music video in a film canister.
