Radiohead's "The King of Limbs" is available now, a day early, because, according to a statement, they were done ahead of schedule. (Can we get Radiohead to run more things in our lives?)

"With everything ready on their website, the band decided to bring forward the release rather than wait," the band said in a statement. For those who want to know what the band sounds like these days before plunking down the $9 for the album download, they have released a video for the gorgeous, dreamy "Lotus Flower." The video features Thom Yorke as some sort of possessed Broadway dancer, which, frankly, is far more shocking and impressive than the new Britney Spears clip.

The "The King of Limbs" CD will be available in stores March 29.
