RADIOHEAD’S SOCIAL MEDIA profiles and official website went blank overnight, as speculation mounts that they’re about to release a new album.

All posts, pictures and details from Radiohead’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were deleted, along with tweets by lead singer Thom Yorke.

As of this afternoon, their website is also entirely blank.

They have concerts scheduled in six cities around the world from 20 May, and will play eight festivals later in the year.

The band has not released any details of its next album other than to confirm it has been in the studio.

However, music website Pitchfork points out that the members of Radiohead started a company, Dawn Chorus LLP, in October, just as they did in the build-up to their two most recent albums, In Rainbows in 2007 and King of Limbs in 2011.

The new album would be the band’s ninth.

In recent days, some Radiohead fans in the UK have received a mysterious leaflet in the post which said: “Sing The Song Of Sixpence That Goes Burn The Witch We Know Where You Live”.

It was embossed with a logo associated with the band.
