Radiohead is pulling out the stops for its ninth studio record, named A Moon Shaped Pool. Having unveiled two teaser singles in the last week – “Burn the Witch” and “Daydreaming” – the rollout was definitely wrought with cliffhangers. (It’s now available for digital download and streaming, excluding Spotify.)
The band also released a companion longform music video for “Daydreaming,” directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia). Yes, it’s widely available via your favorite social media outlet, but now moviegoers will have an opportunity to see the surreal promo on the big screen.
Radiohead sent 35mm canisters of the video to several theaters around the country, each carrying the message, “We’ve made a film, here it is. We’d be happy if you played it!”
The Metrograph on Ludlow Street is one of said theaters. They’ll be playing the “Daydreaming” reel before all showings for the next week.
