Radiohead newspaper comes to Chicago next Tuesday

Posted by Conor O’Hagan

Radiohead have been known to push the envelope when it comes to album releases. 2005’s In Rainbows was released digitally with 10 day’s notice and at the buyer’s desired price. This time they’ve gone one further.

The band have announced there is to be a free newspaper, The Universal Sigh, to be given out for free at newsstands around the world to coincide with the  physical release of their eighth studio album, The King of Limbs. On Tuesday, March 29th at 1 p.m. local time, Chicagoans can pick up their free Radiohead paper at two locations: 1957 West Chicago Ave. in the Ukrainian Village and 26 East Madison St. in Wicker Park. See you there.

  1. I've been patiently awaiting my vinyl copy to come in the mail. Going to have to check out this paper. Thanks for the info!

  2. Looks like Radiohead don't know their Chicago neighborhoods that well.
