RADIOHEAD are to broadcast a performance of their new album In Rainbows on TV and the internet on New Year’s Eve (2007).

The pre-recorded set will be featured on the band’s website, Radiohead.tv, as well as on US and UK cable and satellite channel Current TV.

Commenting online, singer Thom Yorke said the concert would begin on the band’s website at midnight GMT, adding that it would feature “some songs and other bits”.

“This is a wee celebration of the release of the physical manifestation of In Rainbows,” he concluded.

In Rainbows, Radiohead’s latest album, is released on CD and vinyl on December 31 in the UK and January 1 in the US.

It has already been available to fans online since October.
