After their almost-Bond theme “Spectre”, Radiohead return with “Burn the witch” the presumed lead single from their long-awaited ninth album.
The video, set in a pastoral English village, is directed by Chris Hopewell of Jackknife, best known for a previous music video with the band, “There there” from “Hail to the thief”, and has also helmed videos for The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, and Graham Coxon.
“Burn the witch” is a clever stop-motion ode to the 1973 British horror classic “The wicker man”, a movie that dealt with witchcraft in modern times.
No details are revealed of their upcoming LP, the follow-up to 2011’s “The king of limbs”.

Lyrics:

Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round-up

This is a low-flying panic attack
Sing the song on the jukebox that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

Red crosses on wooden doors
If you float you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live
