Radiohead release Burn The Witch video

A still from the video

Radiohead have released an animated video for their track Burn The Witch.

It comes just a day after the band erased their online presence and sent fans cryptic leaflets featuring the group’s ‘bear’ logo and the words: “Sing the song of sixpence that goes burn the witch. We know where you live.”

The video was directed by Chris Hopewell and its style is reminiscent of 60s children’s programmes Camberwick Green and Trumpton.

The band’s manager Brian Message said last month that the follow-up to 2010’s King Of Limbs would be released in June. The band have a number of tour dates confirmed for 2016.
