Last.fm Trends: Radiohead Makes Its Own News
The members of Radiohead haven’t yet gone home for the holidays: yesterday saw them put two new tracks available to buy online, “The Daily Mail” and “Staircase,” just in time for the year’s end. The King of Limbs caused a huge splash in February, but how are fans reacting to new material?
The graph above (click to enlarge) shows Radiohead’s entire year, with a 4,000,000 scrobble peak hit following TKOL‘s release. Still hovering just under a million scrobbles per week, their ‘average’ plays are still anything but.
As regards the new tracks, “The Daily Mail” has already been tagged with ‘if this song were a human i would marry it twice’ by eager listeners. With work on a new album already beginning next month, it seems the love-in is due to continue.
