Radiohead's "pay-what-you-want" option for seventh studio album In Rainbows was seen as a radical move. However, that business model should not overshadow the ingeniousness of announcing the follow-up to 2003's Hail To the Thief just 10 days before its October 2007 online release, immediately stoking fan anticipation for the 10-song release. Four years later, Radiohead gave fans even less notice: The King of Limbs was announced just five days before its February 2011 release, and was packaged with a special "newspaper" edition.

The British band's ninth album 'A Moon Shaped Pool' was released on Sunday.

Radiohead’s long-awaited new release has finally arrived.

The British band’s ninth album — titled A Moon Shaped Pool — was available for streaming and purchase on Google Play for a short while before being taken down early Sunday morning, Pitchfork reports. The 11-track effort, Radiohead’s first since 2011's The King of Limbs, is now available for purchase through iTunes and the band's website.

Moon Shaped Pool was only available for streaming on Apple Music and Tidal as of press time. Spotify tells Billboard that the streaming service will have the album "as soon as we can." Radiohead's PR team had no comment on the band's choice of subscription services.

Last week, the band shared new songs and accompanying music videos for “Burn the Witch” and “Daydreaming,” both of which are featured on Moon Shaped Pool. The video for “Burn the Witch” is a stop-motion clip helmed by Chris Hopewell that tells the story of a quaint village preparing to burn a witch. “Daydreaming,” which was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and Radiohead, follows frontman Thom Yorke on a walking trek through various locations.

Moon Shaped Pool will be issued in physical formats through XL Recordings on June 17. A special edition of the release includes bonus non-album tracks and 32 pages of artwork, along with a piece of half-inch master tape from a recording session.
