Radiohead streams "Supercollider" and "The Butcher"

Now I shelled out the $48 for the newspaper album version of The King of Limbs released by Radiohead because, well, let's face it: I'm a fanboy. But this doesn't detract that it is an amazing album that fits snug into the band's discography.

And for what I am deeming as compensation for the amount of money I spent, and many other across the world, Radiohead sent us a lovely email containing two tracks as a "Thank You," apparently.

"Supercollider" was worked on during the sessions but not finished until March. It is a track that would have been an outcast of the album as it has a more upbeat and euphoric character than the rest of the tracks. But "The Butcher," which was finished during the sessions but the band couldn't fit on the album. It starts out with a deep, dance club bass beat that repeats throughout the song, sending you into a trance. Much like all the other songs on The King of Limbs.

The songs were also released as a two track 12-inch vinyl on Independent Record Store Day this past Saturday, but only in the UK. Luckily for everyone else who weren't made available to either of these options, both tracks are streaming for your listening pleasure:
